    Linux

    Hello Guys,

    I need some direction. You see I am experimenting with Linux (which is not such an easy transition for someone spoiled with Windows all their lives). What good graphing programs are there? Similar to the user-friendly "graph" that I currently use.

    Thanks

    Try using "graph" under wine (the windows emulator).

    Nevermind, I think I destroyed Linux I must be the only person ever to do that. I was updating it to a new version, but I left the computer. the battery ran out while it was updating, so it cut off. now it won't work, so i'm back on windows.

    i'm going to have to re-install it

    I've never tried Linux, but at least to me windows works perfectly.

    i don't have a problem with windows either. however, i am doing things at school now that require Linux, because that's what my professor is working with. there are virtues to having Linux still, but i guess i don't think they are that important...

    Why not just run linux in a virtual machine using something like VMware or Parallels?

    i have heard of VMware, but have little experience with it...neither do i think it's free. never heard of Parallels before. Since Linux is free and i had space to spare on my computer, i opted for the dual-boot system thing

    i want to try the VMware route though. how do i get my system back to a single-boot system? that is, remove the Linux OS and get back my Windows OS with 100% of the hard disk space available to it
