I am switching all my computers over to Linux operating system. Read the full article: http://www.thedoityourselfworld.com/articles/article.php?id=11617
Up to Windows XP, I loved Microsoft products. Windows XP was my favorite operating system because I could customize literally everything. As a power user this is important to me.
But Microsoft dropped XP and came out with Windows 7, which was still usable. Then then came 8 and then 10. I have Windows 10 Home on my power laptop and it does not allow me to customize or modify anything. I try to change settings and it sets them back. Eventually it grayed out my ability to change settings at all somehow. I cannot even get into the registry now. It wont allow me.
The computer kept updating and rebooting at the worst time on me. It would download updates, reducing my horrible bandwidth to useless. I had to wait until Microsoft was done using my computer before I was allowed to use it myself. Same the CPU and other resources.
And having a computer reboot on you while you are programming PHP is very annoying to put it nicely.
So for about a year and a half now I have been considering buying a Mac PC. But they cost way too much and it would take me years to save up for a down payment and then I would have to go into debt.
But I need a serious computer and Windows 10 is garbage.
Then I started experimenting with Ubuntu Linux. I had messed with Linux many years ago but it was too complicated back then.
But now Linux is very stable and free.
I am switching all my computers over to Linux now.
