I have finally settled on Ubuntu 16.04.1 which is running really well so far on the new desktop. Ubuntu is an Open Source operating system that runs like Windows or iOS but it’s free and is largely community and developer supported. At the moment I am downloading free software so I can do things like edit photos, manage media and to create stuff for the blog and so much more.

You may ask why not just use Windows…well I have been a fan of Linux for years. I have been able to take old computers and give them new life because there is less bloatware and that sort of thing. It’s also a matter of being able to upgrade without cost. My Chromebook is based of of Linux too so it runs on the same principle.

Creating and connecting is going to be a lot of fun using this new configuration.

  1. Out of all the Linux desktops I’ve used I always find myself coming back to Ubuntu, and the 16.04 LTS release has been rock solid (at least on my hardware).
