I just wiped out Windows XP from my little Asus Eee Netbook and replaced it with an Ubuntu 16.04. Of course the Asus Eee is a weak little laptop but it turns out ubuntu runs quiet nicely on it. A modern Windows was not a good choice IMHO since it is too resource hungry, especially when I look at all the Windows services attempting to scan my mechanical hard disk. Sometimes I think Microsoft has been sponsored by flash drive manufacturer to increase market demand for their products
While exploring available software in the Ubuntu Software store I discovered Enigma, a nice game I started playing right away. I used to play it some years ago and knew it under the name Oxyd. It is a puzzle game in which you control a ball with the mouse and need to find pairing oxyd stones. In some levels you have to control two little white balls and get them into a hole. Other levels are Sokoban like where you have to move stones around.
Enigma comes with tons of levels, many are real challenging !

Looks like a nice game. You are so right about Microsoft 'services' sucking the life out of any system. The more you have, the more Microsoft takes!

You've just done with the little laptop what I've been promising myself to do every summer, and this summer I think I'll also have missed the opportunity again. Well done! Like the game too.
