Didn't go that well at all

I couldn't get Linux downloaded, so I decided to buy it, a local software place said on their website they had it instock (SUSE) but when I went to get it, they didn't. I installed .NET Server anyway, and I didn't really agree with my system an kept on crashing so I had to reinstall XP Pro. Will prolly have to wait to test it on my machine until RC2+ of .NET Server and I get a copy of linux
