The Realities of Running Linux


This chapter explained what you can realistically expect when using Linux every day. It also discussed the kind of company you’ll be keeping in terms of fellow users.

You learned how people usually get hold of Linux. Of course, with this book, you already have a version of Linux, SUSE Linux, which was introduced in this chapter.
