Пробај или инсталирај

Make the step – unless you wish to purchase a PC with GNU/Linux pre-installed, you can see what freedom looks like on your computer.

Try out: the live CD

Не ризикујте

Using a live CD means that GNU/Linux will be running on your computer without installing anything. It's a risk-less way to try and see by yourself what GNU/Linux is.

Када покрећете живи ЦД, ваш рачунар користи само оптички ЦД уређај за рад (без приступања чврстом диску вашег рачунара). Али можете покренути све подразумеване програме, мењати документе, и претраживати интернет.

Како је живи ЦД креиран само за претпреглед оперативниг система, такав систем је мало спорији (требаће му и пет минута да се подигне, а и програми ће се покретати спорије). Ако се пак одлучите да га инсталирате на чврсти диск, систем ће бити много бржи.

Шта вам треба

Да би сте користили живи ЦД, треба вам мало заинтересованости и петнаест минута слободног времена, и никакво напредно знање у коришћењу ртачунара. Ако осећате самопоуздање користећи Виндовс с' времена на време, онда вам је све ово на дохват руке.

Installing as a dual boot

Изаберите приликом старта

It is possible to install GNU/Linux along with Windows. This means that upon start-up, you will be greeted with a screen allowing you to boot into the operating system you prefer.

Setting up a dual-boot can be helpful if you need time to abandon restrictive software. It is not difficult to set-up, though erasing Windows altogether is even easier.

Шта вам треба

Installing GNU/Linux on your computer will take you less than 30 minutes. It is not an obvious step for complete beginners, but if you use computers on a daily basis this is very likely within your reach. If you have already re-installed Windows on your computer, rest assured that installing GNU/Linux is no harder.

Get the CD you need

For the distributions we recommend, the live CD (or DVD) is the same as the installation CD. You can either download and burn a CD yourself, or order a CD from a trusted vendor.

You can download an iso image (rather large file) and then burn it to a DVD or create a bootable USB stick. You can then use it to install Ubuntu onto your computer.

The Fedora live CD also enables installation. Follow the Fedora installation guide to get started with Fedora.

The Trisquel installation is very similar to that of Ubuntu.

Note: Purchased and downloaded CDs are identical! GNU/Linux is free software. You are simply paying a handling/shipping fee.

Слободан софтвер пре-инсталиран

Not all computers are shipped with Windows. If you do not wish to make the install yourself, or are in need of new hardware, you can get a laptop or a desktop pre-installed with GNU/Linux. LinuxPreloaded.com has compiled a list of vendors pre-installing GNU/Linux just for that reason.
