Reddit: Help getting into Linux

Linuxinsight - 2 hours 59 min ago

Hey Everyone,

I've been itching to move over to linux for a while but I never had a computer that I was willing to install it on until now (used Virtualbox to test it out and learn how to use). It is a dell inspiron with 1.7Ghz (dual core) and 4GB ram.

Would Debian or Manjaro with KDE run well on the computer or would it make more sense to use a lighterweight DE?

LXer: Linus Torvalds Reflects on 25 Years of Linux

Linuxinsight - 3 hours 8 min ago
When Linus Torvalds first announced his new operating system, Linux, on Aug. 25, 1991, it was a "completely personal project,” Torvalds said at LinuxCon today. The kernel totaled 10,000 lines of code that would only run on the same type of hard disk Torvalds himself used because the geometry of the hard disk was hard-coded into the source code. And, he expected only other students to be interested in studying it as a theory.
