Title: yDecode for Linux (Ubuntu)
Post by: WilhelmGGW on June 26, 2008, 07:04:17 PM
I am getting a new Dell computer with the Linux-Ubuntu operating system.

Is there a Linux version of yDecode I can use with this?

Not at the moment and most probably not anytime soon. While Windows version is being developed continually - Linux users are mostly not interested in yDecode because there are no programs like Outlook Express or Windows Mail on Linux. In fact, it's a whole new philosophy to use Linux instead of Windows so you'll probably have to make yourself get used to Ubuntu especially if you've been long-time Windows user. Furthermore you will probably need at least an alternative boot system like Windows because there are simply a lot of programs missing on Linux that exist on Windows (I'm not advocating Windows, in fact I use Ubuntu myself as a secondary OS but many of the programs I really need are not there and the "replacements" are simply not good enough).
