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.

If you just want to experiment with linux, run it in a virtual machine (VM) like Virtual Box.

It's free, does not report back to microsoft what you are doing, can be configured to work the way you want it Wink

At the moment Windows 7 on my lappy and gaming machine, ubuntu server on my home server. Normally I'd have some variation of Linux dual booting on the lappy as I like to try new distros when they get released.

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

Don't you just love rebooting and running windows update like 6 times?
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.

RE: What OS are you using?
I'm not sure. Whatever operating system came with this machine is the one I'm using.

I have a very meticulous method of buying computers. First, I make a list of what I want, in terms of RAM. ROM, REM, monitor size, keyboard colour, etc. I write ALL of this down on the back of an envelope so I'll be sure not to forget anything. Then, I trundle my way over to Big Jim's House O' Data and gain the attention of one of the sales people. I immediately crumple my list into a tight little ball, close my eye, and fling it as hard as I possibly can in a random direction. I find the computer closest to where the ball landed and tell the clerk, 'I'll have that one, please.'

This usually turns out surprisingly well, except for the time I tried to buy the cash register.

My Ubuntu VM seems to be freezing constantly, going to remove that and replace it with Linux Mint.

Are you encountering random freezing during browsing and at shutdown? A lot of users seem to be.
