I've no experience of Lindows but you sound as if, like me, you have
little or no Linux programming ability/interest, or indeed wider IT
knowledge.  If so, it might be useful for you to know that I've had
little problem with Red Hat 7 and 8 doing almost everything through the
KDE graphic interface, using mainly the OpenOffice suite, Mozilla and
the various
built-in programmes for things like .pdf reading and writing, etc.  In
fact I use Linux just like most general business users use Windows
without any problems and with a number of advantages - the only drawback
is that I have to have one Windows machine in the house too for my
12-year-old daughter to play recent heavily marketed games etc. on!
