For potential newcomers unfamiliar with Linux, Granular is an excellent starting point and one that will make their introduction to Linux, as easy and smooth as possible. To this end, Granular linux purposefully includes built in instruction manuals and 'How To' guides. These have been designed to be as easy to read as they are useful. At the same time Granular, is also attractive to both regular or advanced Linux users in that it provides a collection of useful command line and administrative tools.
Granular Linux makes it as easy as possible to do all the familiar things you would do on a Windows PC with the same benefits, minus the costs of a commerical Operating system licencing and upgrade headaches. Functions such as surfing the internet, writing articles, making presentations, chatting with friends, listening to music, managing images or simply playing games are all catered for.
This is the strength of Linux and Granular in particular, because all such activities from the most simple to the most creative, are carried out through completely free and updatable Linux based software.
