I formatted my drive ready to install Windows 10 but then realised I needed to install my bought and paid for Windows 7. So I started to install Windows 7 which needed to see XP.
I needed the computer so I installed Ubuntu until I found my copy of XP. That was 7 months ago.
I cant see me ever going back to Windows now. Has this ever happened to you. ?
I am actually planning to move to linux distros as of right now as we speak and already decided for Ubuntu and later try out the SteamOS.
The only thing holding me back was gaming environments, and comon gaming industries are actually looking out for linux lovers as well.
And the best part is to be the part of an open source community.
I'm running 8.1 on my worklap top and on it I'm running 2VM's: windows 10 and a basic debian server.
windows 10 does have it's privacy issues but nonetheless:
- all websites use trackers: google adds/statistics and what not
- facebook collects personal information
- android phones... you contact information is in the cloud ( read at google's disposal )
privacy is something that we are slowly giving away and there isn't a lot we can do about it if we keep using the same tools.
Debian is my favorite linux distro because it's stable and wel tested. also it doesn't include any crapware and is not backed and built by a company like canonical.
if I ever have the time ( probably not ) I will try to build my own distro using the LFS book.
What's the problem about Canonical? Amazon controversies?
