Three years ago, I bought my first computer. It was the top of the line: a Pentium II, 266 MHz, with 160 MB RAM. Despite lots of effort — numerous patches, well-known utilities software, anti-virus updates — my computer froze or was sluggish, much too often.

Last year, I started looking for alternatives. I’ve started learning and using a new operating system (OS) called Linux. It seems stable, it makes economic sense to me, and I’m finding it fairly easy to use. To me, it makes sense for solo or small-firm attorneys to consider these new choices. (If you’re in a big firm on a different OS, Linux might enhance that old PC at home, the one that often freezes up.)
