I am fed up with Windows and it's constant slowness. I have recently bought a new laptop with Windows 8 preinstalled on it. Windows 8 updates a lot, and also runs slower by the day. This computer is only a few months old, but running like it's older then that. I would like to et Linux on my computer as I hear it is a lot faster and overall better. I also need to keep Windows so I have access to Microsoft Office for school work. I have heard that you can have both Windows and Linux on a computer and run which ever one you need at that moment. Is that true? Where do I get Linux and what version of it should I get?
