Proveu o instal·leu

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.

Proveu: el CD autònom (liveCD)

Sense cap risc

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.

Quan treballeu sobre un CD autònom, l'ordinador utilitza solament el CD-ROM per treballar -no deixa rastre, ni tant sols toca el disc dur. El sistema treballa bastant bé, podem executar totes les aplicacions per defecte i, fins i tot, navegar per Internet.

Òbviament, és un xic lent (trigarà fins a cinc minuts en començar, i els programes seran un poc lents) - recordeu que només és una demostració. Si decidiu instal·lar-lo, el sistema serà molt més ràpid.

Què és necessari

Per a utilitzar un CD Autònom, necessiteu un poc de curiositat, quinze minuts de temps lliure i cap coneixement avançat sobre ordinadors. Si us sentiu còmode utilitzant Windows, ho podreu fer.

Instal·lant amb arrencada dual

Escolliu a l'arrencada

És possible instal·lar GNU/Linux amb Windows. Això vol dir que cada cop que engegueu l'ordinador, una pantalla us preguntarà amb quin sistema operatiu voleu començar.

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.

Què és necessari

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.

Programari lliure preinstal·lat

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.
