Hi everyone. If my message isn't very clear, I appologize ahead of time.
I've had a very frustrating day in computer research lnd. Even knowing
that Linux isn't mainstream, I didn't know things would be this difficult,
so if I'm a bit hard to follow, that's why.
What I want to know is, short of building my own computer, are there any
options for either buying a computer with Linux already installed or for
buying a computer with no operating system on it to begin with? Dell will
only install on business systems, and Compaq's web site claims that
several versions of Linux are among the operating systems they offer, but
when I called the number listed, I didn't get any people, I only got "You
live in Seattle Washington, Compaq computers are available at these
locations." Mutter mutter mutter.
And while I'm here I'll ask a couple of other things. Is there a list
anywhere of scsi scanners currently in production complete with features
And I've seen the occasional mention of a program called Viavoice on here?
Is this a screen reader for Linux, and if so, what are its positives,
negatives, and how does it compare to Speak Up?
