Hello Everyone,
                        I know that this is probably not the best place
to post this question, but I'm going to ask anyway!.
At present I'm using windows 95 and for little other than intereast I am
now seriously thinking of making the switch to
Free BSD 2.2.6. which I purchased from Walnut Creek cdrom 1 year ago. My
computer is for home use only, wordprocessing, spreadsheet, games
internet  and E-mail. Various failures (well 3 half hatred attempts) at
getting BSD up and running have been my experience to date. I did get
the x-window system up and running once I logged in as root but that was
about it. I had no sound, no modem no softerware nothing and the screen
resolution was awful the view area was about 4 times the size of the

        All I really want to know is if BSD is a viable alternative to
win'95 on a home computer for some fairly mundane computing.

Yours Faithfully

Paul O' Donovan.
