Wyndoze 10 and Linux Mint

Never underestimate the power of very stupid people in large groups

Arguing with an engineer is like wrestling with a pig in mud ..... after a while you realise that the pig likes it!

All these open source OS's have the problem of not allowing me to even get past the install.

Linux sucks if I can't even get it running.

It rocks for technically proficient geeks. Unfortunately I'm merely nerdy.

In my experience windows installs are generally more painful then Linux ones. The only issue I have ever had with Linux installs is poorly supported hard ware.
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

I've never installed Windows either, all the computers I have ever had have had a copy of Windows pre-installed on them.

I've installed Windows numerous times for friends. It's definitely a bigger pain in the arse than Linux installs.

Yeah, I agree.  I was a strong fan of XP after they got it properly patched up, but Windows 7 really turned it up to "11" for me.

Windows 8 I totally hate, except for one thing-- omg those fast boot times!  My daughter has a pretty good comp with Windows 8, and I have a very good comp with Windows 7, and her boot time is 1/4 mine. The only problem is-- she has to use Windows 8. Tongue

RE: What OS are you using?
Win10 has definitely settled down for me.
Like 7 but faster boot as mentioned.

Is there an easy way to dual boot win10 and Linux these days.
Someone remind me again why I need Linux? I forgot.
No God, No fear.
Know God, Know fear.
