Linux – I Wish I’d Switched Years Ago

Tuesday evening I rage quit Windows when it decided that I wasn’t using my computer and it was time to install an update. Forced updates are bad enough but disrupting my work? With all the other things I dislike about Windows 10, that just one too much.

It took me less than an hour to set up Linux and get it doing what I want. As I used no Windows based programs anyway, I’m still working in the same environment. The hardest thing so far was getting it to let me lock into my network and even that only took minutes.

And to top things off: A few years ago, I spent hours trying to get Windows to display a clock on the taskbar on both screens only to find out that it’s impossible.  Linux let me do it with just a quick Google search.

So, that’s it for me. No more buying prebuilt computers just for the OS.
