Blag Linux

I would dearly love not to have to use Windows and absolutely dread the day when I may have to use Vista. For a long time now I’ve had my eye on Linux, trying different distros now and again. The most promising of these has always been Blag from the Brixton Linux Action Group.

I tried the latest version recently and the few niggles I had previously have all have been ironed out. I can honestly say that if I used my PC for writing letters and running my business, surfing and chatting, watching videos and listening to music, there’s absolutely no doubt I’d be on Blag right now and saying goodbye to Microsoft.

The sad fact is that Linux has nothing to match Vegas Video for video editing and Dreamweaver for web development. Two tools I simply can’t do without.

I know some Linux enthusiasts will point to NVU for HTML and CineLerra for video, but I’ve looked at those and they simply aren’t up to the job for one reason or another.
