Is that where the saying, "A penny for your (rational) thoughts" came from?

Maybe. Some guy named Heywood or Haywood came up with it. He was hated by the Catholic church, and excommunicated:

I will try it tomorrow.  Looks complicated for a non techie like me.  I have to get some discs if I understood correctly.

Crap.

I was half joking, but only because I hate Windows and would absolutely love to see more people running a Linux distro. Linux can be complicated for the newbie, especially Debian, but it's not all bad because there are some easier distros out there for the non-techies. If you'd like to try it out download VirtualBox or any other VM available and go from there, or download a live CD and boot up.

The thing is that installing Linux can do one of two things: either completely wipe out your Windows partition and install only one OS (Debian) or re-partition your hard drive and install Windows and Debian along side eachother. It all depends on how familiar you are with partitioning a hard drive, and/or how risky you want to be. It's not all that difficult considering there are seriously hundreds of tutorials on the Internet for how to do it.

So, if you're non-technical and have a lot of things on your WIndows PC (like music, documents, pictures, etc) that you don't have backed up to an external drive, sticking with Windows might be a good idea without at least trying and getting familiar with Linux first.

Alright.

Skep, if you want, you can ask me one question at a time. This rejection of ToE don't fly with me.

Yeah, if only she had washed the feet of Jesus with her tears?
