Hi there and thanks in advance to anyone who reads this, I've always been a Windows user. Last year I bought a new Laptop, a Dell Inspiron 15. It came pre-loaded with Windows 10, which is what I'm using to type this message. Since day 1, I have hated this system with a serious passion. I hate, hate, hate, hate Windows 10. I want to kill my computer. I swear to god there are many times at home where Win 10 is jamming up and my youtube radio dies, and I have to power my free Obamaphone to play youtube to get me through the quiet lol. It's pretty sad that a crappy phone is more alive than my computer. Anyway, back in the old XP days, I had a Dell laptop that came with the Re-install disks, and the product key/code was written on the bottom of the machine. If the computer was slow and buggy, I could just run DBAN, completely kill the hard-drive, re-install XP and have a like-new computer. (Log in to hide this advertisement) Of course, Windows 10 sucks such a giant egg that it didn't come with install disks even though I paid a lot more for this computer. So I'm just done with Windows and their stupid crap. There are 10 million other reasons I hate Windows 10, but I'm sure you've all heard about its bugs. I'm not computer literate, but realize I need to take action. This has become a serious war in my mind, and I'm tired of these corporations sticking it to me. I want Microsoft out of my life for good, and I want any trace of its shitty software off of my computer. The problem is, I know how to use DBAN and wipe my computer, but after that I'm lost. I've heard I can just burn a Linux disk, but the question is A) What Linux should I get? I just want a super light, quick OS that is bare bones. B) Will the Linux software connect to my Wifi hardware? Does all the hardware like keys typing work right off the bat, or does that have to be coded in? I keep reading that Linux is "good if you like writing code". Really? I don't really like that. I just want an OS that connects to my Wifi, I can cruise online and do some typing for God's sake. I don't know how this computer technology got so out of hand in terms of usability for the average dullard like me. Thanks well in advance for any tips so I can get this Windows nonsense off of my machine!
