Thinking of switching from Windows to Linux? Have you read so much about the telemetry of Microsoft's new platform and come up with the idea of finding a "easy" distribution that looks like Windows?
Let us then inform you that this article is not for you. Change the page and look for the specialist who will give you a list of hundreds of technical details and comparative tests. If you think so good would be to stay on Windows, and if you do not want telemetry to install Windows XP.
Only Microsoft does not support the operating system anymore.
The above questions, although important to you, can not be answered by iGuRu.gr and we will explain the reasons.
Easy to Look Like Windows. You just played and lost twice.
We could perhaps list dozens of "easy" distributions and support our point of view: MX Linux, Ubuntu, elementary OS, Mint etc. We could mention dozens of difficult Arch, Gentoo and others.
However, our view is that none will be easy because you simply change your operating system. If you are waiting for a Windows operating paste copy, stay in Windows.
Linux means freedom. It is a feature that has been designed to make it easy for a Linux user who knows what he wants, not someone who starts today with Linux.
Linux means community, interactivity, and sharing, no connection to the Windows enclosed environment and the canned Thursday patches.
Linux means experimentation:
So if you want a ready-to-use Windows-like operating system and you do not have the mood for some formats, mood to play and learn Linux is not for you.
Even Arch, which is considered a "difficult" distribution, is based on the same logic:
Play to find out!
Linux distributions are the same, few are the changes that one encounters, the basis is the same. Parameters are changing.
So if you are one of those guys who when a problem occurs on their computer do not ask a question in the Google search engine, but immediately call the unfortunate "specialist" of the company or family, stay in Windows, although it is certain that still and the Microsoft operating system will make it difficult for you.
If you are a questioner and then you get the phone, you belong to the above category so read back the end of the previous proposal.
If you are now looking for a problem to solve it, I welcome you to the Linux world!
Although there are no recipes as there are no "easy" distributions we can mention some basic principles for the next Linux users (ie those who are in the mood to make mistakes and have an appetite for reading):
1. If you decide to change operating give it time.
2. Play with Live DVD - USB. Get a little familiar with the distribution that you find interesting.
3. Try this distribution in all the available work environments available until you find the most productive for you.
4. Get rid of the logic of using Windows applications on Linux. Linux is another operating system so the applications it uses are different. Yes, there are Middle Eastern solutions to install a PhotoShop but its functionality will not be the same as Windows.
I apologize to everyone and everyone - those who were upset, but I think that if I wrote with comparative tests trying to prove what is the best distribution for ME, you will be more disappointed after the first installation.
That way, at least you will not screw me!
I consider it invalid to give you a documented solution and you to do it because the "expert" from iGuRu.gr said so, if you do not want to experiment and make mistakes.
