Our latest episode has been released: http://goinglinux.com/shownotes.html#glp318

As always, we receive feedback on previous episodes, but this time we also receive feedback on feedback on feedback. We have a word of caution for Windows users burning Linux ISO files with ImgBurn, questions on Linux drivers and the differences between distros, suggestions on getting Ubuntu MATE installed, and a Gone Linux story. There is much more feedback in the episode than we can list here, so you will just have to listen. We know you will anyway!

At our listeners' requests, we provide a review of some non-Debian Linux distributions. Bill tried Sabayon, Scientific Linux, OpenSuSE, Fedora, PCLinuxOS, and Archbang. Did he switch to an RPM distribution from Ubuntu? Listen to our latest episode to find out!

I don't get it. Why is this a big deal? With Ubuntu MATE, I just right-click on the window's title bar and select "Always On Top." ANY window. And I can make it any size I want and put it anywhere I want! Puzzling. :/

Our Latest Article: Make A LiveCD, LiveDVD or LiveUSB From Windows, Mac Or Linux

When you want to switch your from Windows or Mac to a distribution (version) of Linux, you need to obtain a copy of Linux in a format you can use to install the new operating system. The .iso file you download doesn't do you much good on its own. You need to convert that file into a form that will allow you to create a CD, DVD or USB drive that lets you to try Linux without changing your computer at all, with an option to install it permanently later.

And now... our final episode for the year... Episode 313 Getting Support For Linux Computers!

You can get help for your Linux computer in many ways. In this episode, we provide some details about each kind of support. Many of the answers to your questions are available on your distribution's website. Often, the fastest and easiest way to get answers to your questions about how to use Linux and its applications is to ask in the distribution's community forum.

Our latest article: Display Your Linux System Information

When you move to a new operating system it's often difficult to find what you are looking for -- at first. Take finding a list of your system hardware for example. On Windows, you right-click on the My Computer icon and select Properties... On Apple's OS-X, you select About This Mac from the Apple menu... Linux, too, has graphical tools to display information about your computer's hardware.
