    It's been a long time since I've been on here. Thanks to school. I just took a old laptop and brought it back to life with linux.

    Hi there, I started chatting on this site about a year ago and then I started school. That has pretty much taken up much of my time. I still mess around with Linux for fun on my free time. My main computer has Windows and Manjaro linux. I originally had plain Arch Linux but it was a pain in the...

    Making a win10 laptop dual-boot

    First thing you need to do is go into your BIOS (this is when your computer boots) by pressing F10 on Acer F2 on Dell. Not sure on the others, search the internet. Disable smartboot. allow boot from usb. Done :)

    How can I game on Linux?

    I am a big gamer. To tell you the truth, my Steam games run better in Linux. My processor runs a little hotter but my graphics card runs way better. NVidia has awesome support in linux. AMD Does not.

To hell with gnome, Cinnamon, Unity and xfce. Deepin is my happy place. I'm running on Arch Linux LTS whatever. To tell...

    Have heard Linux is the way to go

    I was huge into computers back in the early 90's when I was in High School. I even went to a polytech school (NAIT) for Computer Engineering in 1997 but there wasn't any jobs so I went into the oil field instead. After I had kids I lost my computer skills, its just in the last year that I'm...

    Have heard Linux is the way to go

    I have had issues with uefi and secure boot installations. Boot loader issues, os-prober issues. Thats where I get confused. I Prefer the old system. Shit, I learned on DOS 5.0. I'm dating myself, I'm new to this group and I'm drunk lol. I have to say its way more friendly here than the arch bbs.

    Have heard Linux is the way to go

    I would have to agree with poorguy that Linux Mint is probably your best bet. I used Mint Cinnamon off and on for quite awhile now but recently changed to Arch Linux with Cinnamon Desktop (I don't recommend for people new to Linux). During my time trying different distros I ran into MX linux...
