Anyone wants to help a newbie?
just got a new old computer and want to say goodbye to MS, after planning it for so long. But a bit worried still, even if I am not completely illiterate...anyone wants to offer advice on how to get started? I don't need much, just the standard so far...
(is it true that there is no open source layout program? I would need that some time later...)
thkanks for the tips, think I will go for Ubuntu also since there's an American friend here offering to help me with it. But a CD won't help me much without a drive...
Heard about Scribus, but also heard that it can't really replace InDesign which I sometimes used.
Next mission will be getting around the Great Wall...even if I don't use f.book, and youtube quite rarely, but still - welcome to China! But compared to the Pentagon, they are quite relaxed here, no real need to worry...
You can boot ubuntu from a pendrive, check out UNetbootin http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/
And, not sure if it can replace a layout software, but I use lyx for editing stuff (lyx is a WYSIWYM editor)
