Link: Migrating to Linux

InfoWorld’s Zack Urlocker pointed out 3 tools to aide in migrating data from Windows to Linux in his article Moving from Windows to Linux.

Three Tools

  1. Ubuntu: has built-in tools to move the information from Windows
  2. MoveOver
  3. Desktop Migration Agent

These tools look very interesting. I think a database of applications would be more helpful for me. I don’t have as much trouble moving my data from one place to another, but finding Linux applications to replace the Windows applications is where I have the most trouble.

Interestingly enough, I came across this article shortly after. The section “The application situation” had some very helpful tips including this source:

The table of equivalents / replacements / analogs of Windows software in Linux.
