No not really. I had a duel boot machine to do homework on so there was no hinder on my understanding of Windows. I prefer to use Linux though.

Ive been trying to get into linux but I am so used to windows that I just don't really see the upside of changing to it. What are your favorite parts about it?

It takes time to get used to the Linux environment as well. The only thing that so far has been a problem is the drivers. I remember having trouble getting the audio or the video to work, but they have gotten better! wwaaayyy better. There are plenty of reasons why I like it but it's a start. Linux brings more than just the main dish to the table, if you want something else, you can go back to the kitchen and get it rather than waiting for updates. There are different kinds of flavors of Linux that anyone can just taste (I'm hungry, that's why I have kitchen metaphors).

What I like:

  • Memory consumption isn't too bad. On my laptop I just browse the Internet or compile some code is all. So I don't need the huge demand on my memory. here. If there is any activity the computer should handle it. In the album the top one is Kubuntu with three tabs open in Firefox (Chrome is unstable on Kubuntu and not on Ubuntu but it's unfair since I have Ubuntu installed on a high-end computer). The bottom is windows with only Chrome running. I made sure that there are the other programs like drop box and Google drive are running. So memory is handled very differently.

  • The ability to control my files. It's a gift and a curse. You can see everything to no limit, edit it, do anything to them. Someone on Ubuntu forums mentioned that you can reinstall Ubuntu files without deleting anything you did, however; I believe it deletes the password, Whoops!

  • Changing themes, appearances, or even the desktop itself.

  • Coding on Linux is the only way to go. I recently had taken a class which helped my understanding in programming languages. There is a lot happening behind the scenes and we were behind the curtain.

  • Lastly, Speed. The boot up is fast and hardly locks up.
