With a technology background, I know about building and putting together computers. My wife and I really need more than one computer (honestly, more than two or even three).
I was able to put some scrap parts together and we had two new computers. The second one’s kind of limited in the area of hardware, but we it will do. I used Ubuntu instead of Windows, and I’ve found excellent free replacements for all the software. That’s where I saved thousands. Everything is free.
I’ve started a blog and it will tell you how you can save a load of cash using the free operating system. The blog’s called Ubuntu For Free and you can find it on the http://www.forwardyouth.com home page.
