Linux, occasionally referred to as GNU/Linux, is an open source and free operating system predominantly known for its use in servers, but has increasingly become commonplace in desktop, notebook and netbook computers in recent years after newer and enhanced versions of Linux distributions, Ubuntu or Linux Mint for example, are developed and offered free to users.

While you can get the Linux system and use it for free, you can also run on the system a wide range of free applications such as well-known and commonly-used software including Firefox web browser and the LibreOffice application suite.

    Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? Many thanks

    no, its not a bit hard to setup a blog.
    all you need is
    1. A domain ( you can get free at )
    2. Web hosting service ( you can get free upto 5 gb at byethost )
    3. for easiness, you can use wordpress, Joomla, Geeklog etc to give life to your page. ( i would recommend wordpress, its the easiest and has got everything which is needed.)

    after registering in all this, its a 5 minute game to setup your own blog.

    Or you can even register at, and directly run your blog.
    there will be some restrictions such as you cant host ads, banners, adfly etc. and there will be limited widgets and themes to install.
    but still it is good to start.
