XP to Linux

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – As all of you probably know, XP is no longer going to be supported past April. I run my "old" CAD program on my "old" computer running on XP. It works just fine. I'm told that I can run all of my "old" programs if I switch over to Linux. Is this true? If so, it may the least expensive and best way for me to carry on without having to upgrade my programs and computer. What is involved? (HowTos)
