After all these years, after lots of trial and error, I'm finally running Ubuntu on a machine designed for Windows.

I acquired a PC with Linux on it several months ago. It took a while to get used to it after umpteen years of Windows but I'm just about there now.

However, I still go up to top right when I want to leave a page and then have to switch across to top left. :D No doubt that will come eventually.

Well I had multiple tabs of Firefox open alongside Visual Studio and also Thunderbird, yet I was only using 78% of my RAM. Man this feels good, on Windows it would have been breaking 90% and then the whole system would start to lag :wall:

Nah. You get points for becoming a penguin. You loose points due to the distro choice. :eek:

Well done, making the leap from Windows to installing a penguin is almost as important as that first step on the moon. Now that you have dipped your toe into the alternative operating system world why not give MINT or MX-18 a try. :thumb:

@Abarbarian I tried to install a different distro and the instructions I followed didn't work. I was able to burn the ISO to my thumb drive, but when I tried to boot to it, it wasn't recognized.

Ok, go into My Contribution > My Team > Find a Team.

In the Contains box type in The PCReview Crew II (that's two capital Is) and click Search. This should bring up Team Name: The PCReview Crew II ( in blue ). Click on that and it will bring up Team Information and in Team Control Panel there is a clickable box marked Join. Click that and you're in. :nod:
