I have not tried this yet. But I am dling it as I type this. I will post a few screens once I have it running. IF I can get it running.
Colorwheel is the answer for migrating your system from Windows to… anything else! After the changes to Windows with Windows 8, there were calls for a system that is as easy to use as Windows, without a steep learning curve. Colorwheel is to be as easy to use as the Windows family of operating systems without forcing the user into an uncomfortable interface. After all, it’s your computer, not your software company’s!
Will I still be able to use my programs and files?
Most of the time the answer is: “Sure!” While there are a few cases of incompatibility between the two, thanks to the years of effort of the folks behind the installed WINE codebase, the majority of Windows programs work just fine on Colorwheel. Meanwhile, some programs like LibreOffice are meant to– and successfully do– replace things like Microsoft Office, while the users files remain intact, and even in their native format if needed.
So how much does Colorwheel really cost?
It really costs nothing except the time to install it! Just download it, and install. If you want free support, go to the forum. The pricing on the support page is for paid phone and email support.
What are the hardware requirements?
Colorwheel was designed to be usable with older-spec computers (2000 and up) and can be run comfortably on a system with as little as 512 MB of RAM and at least 10 GB of hard drive space. On a 1GB RAM machine with a 40 GB hard drive, your computer will run at a great speed. On a bigger desktop or laptop, Colorwheel is blindingly quick.
What is Colorwheel?
Colorwheel is an independent distrubution of GNU/Linux using Ubuntu/Debian as its base. It has underlying Ubuntu 12.04 technology, which is the latest Long-Term-Support (until 2015) version. However, Colorwheel’s been designed to make the change from Windows easier.
How many programs are available for Colorwheel?
Thousands. Literally anything that runs on Ubuntu instantly runs on Colorwheel. Anything that runs on Linux or Debian Linux runs on Colorwheel in a minute or two. And thousands of Windows programs run just fine on Colorwheel.
