Have You Tried Linux As Yet?

Clean Desk

Unfortunately, there are a large number of people who would not even dream of giving Linux a try.

And, why is it that a large number of people are afraid of giving Linux a try?

Because, whenever they hear or see the word, “Linux,” they tend to think of a complex operating system that is only used by nerds and hackers.

Okay, I will admit that nerds and hackers are quite fond of Linux; but they are not the only ones who love Linux.

Believe it or not, regular people love Linux too (However, they are the adventurous type of people who enjoy learning new things). 

To be most straightforward with you, Linux is way different from Windows 10 or any of the past operating systems that Microsoft released (And, that will involve learning how to use entirely new software).

Yes, my friend, the learning curve is a bit higher when it comes to Linux (But, do not allow that thought to discourage you from dabbling in Linux).

The God’s/Goddess’s truth is that there is a distribution of Linux that is ideal for:

  • Those people who are new to Linux.
  • Those people who are at a medium level in regards to their expertise in Linux.
  • Those people who are highly advanced at using Linux.

So, by all means, choose your distribution of Linux wisely (A simple Google query should enable you to decipher whether or not it is a user-friendly distribution of Linux).

And, since I am eager for you to give Linux a try, I will recommend a few of them to experiment with.

Do You Have A Favourite Operating System?

Black

A large percentage of people have only used one operating system — Microsoft Windows (So, a particular version of the Windows operating system will most likely be their favourite operating system).

There is an old adage that states, “Variety is the spice of life.” Therefore, one of the best ways of finding out your preference in operating systems is to give a few of the other operating systems a try.

Have you had the experience of using any other operating system other than Microsoft Windows?

This Blogger Loves Linux

The God’s/Goddess’s truth is that I have no regrets about jumping on the Linux bandwagon.

I have been using Linux for approximately three years.

My Linux journey began when I decided to rid myself of Microsoft Windows.

I did not like the direction in which Microsoft had headed (They turned a lot of their products into a subscription model).

Also, I felt that Microsoft did not have my best interest at heart.

Most of the computer malware on the world wide web was designed to affect Microsoft Windows.

And, Linux is way more secure than Microsoft Windows.

The crazy thing about Windows is that you do not own it, despite buying a legal copy of it; it is actually leased to you and Microsoft has full control over the operating system; they can change your settings anytime that they want to.

It really made no sense buying a copy of Windows 10 Pro and not being able to own it and I disliked the idea of Microsoft changing things on my computer.

With Linux, you are in full control of everything and the distribution of Linux that you downloaded on your computer is yours. Continue reading “This Blogger Loves Linux”

  • Smartphones.

  • Laptop computers.
  • Desktop computers.

However, I do not know which is the most commonly used electronic device that my fellow bloggers blog on.

Can you help me out with that?

I would really like to know which one of those electronic devices that you use the most for blogging purposes. Continue reading “Which Electronic Device Do You Blog On?”

My Laptop Computer Was Repaired Today

Laptop Computer

It has been a while since I carried my laptop computer to be checked by a service technician.

The last time a service technician saw my laptop computer was when I had Windows 8 on it (At the time it was cutting off without warning — power vacated the laptop computer at intervals; I eventually found out, that the problem was not with the laptop computer; the issue was with the power supply cord).

Today, I sent the laptop computer to the service technician to have the screen replaced. He looked at my laptop computer, opened it up and said, “I have the size screen for it,” and he also mentioned something that pertained to having the right connection for it.

The service technician lent me his Toshiba Satellite laptop to use while my laptop computer was being repaired (And, that was because I told him that I needed a laptop computer to blog on in the meantime). Continue reading “My Laptop Computer Was Repaired Today”
