SolusOS?

Why not try SolusOS? It's based on Debian, so it won't be too much out of the ordinary.

Thumb Up

Really want one!

I reaaaaaaally want one. I honestly don't care if it only has 16GB at max, because I probably won't use all that space anyway. Most of the stuff I listen too, or read is either in the cloud or on the web.

Quote the FBI!

Tell the lad to say "it's not physical information!" Play the US at their own game.

Opinion of an 18 y.o

I'm 18, and it's no surprise that my generation are more interesting in entertainment and community. When you have companies like Microsoft pushing the Xbox 360 for gaming, entertainment & community and then also allow all of that to tie in with what you do using Windows, it's no surprise at all.

IMO, if younger people were told, or even shown infront of them just how fast their details can be taken I'm sure they would think twice. Their minds have been corrupted because of companies like Microsoft, Facebook, etc. It's the co-operate companies that paint this exact picture.

Now me, I take securit very seriously, especially as I run a computer systems business dealing with Linux, Mac OS X & Windows. As a result, my company has been built on and through Linux. I use Linux on a daily-basis and I've locked down my routers firewall, and also bought a physical firewall as well. I have a pretty sophisciated network setup, especially for my age, but I guess that comes from a background of wanting to tinker with computers and see what happens. I'm glad I can translate that passion into a business making plan and earn a living from it because it's something I enjoy.
