Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols shares his thoughts on starting out with Linux:

Definitely some things I haven't thought of, but I do like leaving your Windows system intact.

Agree. It would be insane for most people to expect to just stop relying on Windows and jump exclusively into a whole new OS right off the bat - even though many people have done just that.

I admire my GF's approach to dessert choices: Why settle for either when you can have both?

Why indeed? ;D
