The FOSS community makes new users feel welcome

After being semi-comfortably ensconced in the world of Microsoft products since the days of Windows 3.0, I recently joined the growing ranks of people who realize the value in switching to open source software.

Free Agent: How to Compile Free Software Apps

Let me start with a controversial statement: Installing new software is almost always easier on Linux than on Windows or the Mac OS. I can already envision the angry e-mail.
