The Easiest and Quickest Way Ever to Experience Linux!

Just about every computer user has heard about Linux and is eager to experience it first hand, but they don't always have a spare computer on which to try it. Today we're announcing LindowsCD, the easiest way ever to try out Linux on just about any computer. To run LindowsCD, you put the CD into the CD-ROM drive and restart your computer and

The LindowsCD desktop
presto, you're running LindowsOS! There's absolutely no installation process and nothing is changed on your hard disk, making it a risk-free way to try Linux. It's by far the easiest way to experience all of the great features of LindowsOS 4.0, including the newly designed interface, Plug & Play devices, elegant Internet programs, etc. We've also included an entire Microsoft Office-compatible office suite for opening spreadsheets, presentations and word processing documents. Using some tricky compression techniques, we are able to include an entire Linux environment onto one CD!

There are several ways to get a LindowsCD disc to see for yourself:

  • Buy LindowsCD for just $29.95 exclusively from TigerDirect and get a CD shipped to you.
  • Buy LindowsOS 4.0 for $49.95 within the next week and receive a bonus LindowsCD disc for digital download with your purchase (or if you prefer, for $59.95 plus S/H we will ship to you a LindowsOS 4.0 disc, a LindowsCD disc and a full color quick start guide).
  • If you've already purchased LindowsOS, then LindowsCD is available for immediate download in your my.lindows account for you to download and make your own disc.

I've been using LindowsCD for quite a while and have found some great uses for you to consider:

1) Learning Linux In Just Minutes
If you want to experience Linux over a lunch break or at home without disturbing anything on your existing computer, then LindowsCD is the risk-free way to do it. LindowsCD runs without touching anything on your hard disk, so you can put Linux onto a computer in the time that it takes to start up your computer, instead of the installation process normally associated with running Linux. After startup, select "LindowsOS Basics" from the life jacket icon, and a multimedia tutorial walks you through the basics (be sure to try opening your Microsoft-formatted documents to see how well that works). When you're done, just restart your computer and everything is back to its previous condition.

2) Testing Hardware for its Linux-readiness
Starting up a desktop or laptop with LindowsCD is the easiest way to test whether or not your equipment is Linux-ready. Because LindowsCD uses the same industry leading auto-detection as LindowsOS 4.0, you'll be able to test your Ethernet, video, modem, sound and all the other pieces of your hardware in just minutes. If it works with LindowsCD, you can be sure it will work with LindowsOS.

3) Linux Demos for Others

Instant messaging, MP3s from a usb pen drive, web and network browsing

Some people still need convincing that not only are the web browser, instant messenger and other parts of Linux easy for existing Microsoft Windows users to use, but in many cases Linux is loaded with great features not found in Microsoft Windows. Some people still remember trying Linux back in its dark ages for desktop use, when it was difficult or impossible to print, plug in devices, or communicate with Microsoft Windows file servers. Being able to carry a CD, which I can load into any computer and in minutes be running the state of the art Linux, makes winning over more users to Linux a breeze.

4) Training Labs
Most computer labs are running Microsoft operating systems, making them difficult to host Linux classes. But using LindowsCD, it's easy to convert an entire lab of computers into Linux machines in under 5 minutes by inserting a disc and restarting each computer. In the time it takes the computers to restart, they are ready to go, running LindowsOS.

I hope you'll give LindowsCD a try and let me know how it works for you!
