Switching From Windows To Linux

Jonathan MathewsPublic


Windows is there in our life from a long time. From our school’s computer labs to our PC at home where we had been playing games to every neighbor in the hood everyone is using windows since a long time. Switching is never easy especially when most of the thing you own is compatible with Windows only not Linux. But there are reasons why you want to switch that’s why you are here, to find out the problems, their solutions and most likely reasons why you want to make the switch.

​I will help you in the best way I can because I also made that decision, so I know what could be problems and their solutions.

Reasons To Switch

Why should I promote you to switch? Here are the best reasons why you want to switch to a Linux based OS, that you already know but still wants me to remind you (Probably).

  • Linux based OS is free. Yeah! Completely free, no hidden cost and no shitty license agreement that forces you not to distribute or modify OS. It’s yours and you are completely free to modify, share it if you want (GPL v2)
  • Nothing that can’t be uninstalled. Linux based OS will never force you to use or have any special preloaded app. Don’t you want it? Uninstall it. Simple!
  • You get to choose you what you want to update/upgrade or not. No one will ever force you for updates and even if you wish to stay on old version you will regularly get updates still (LTS).
  • Most all windows apps have an alternative. There is a nice community to help you on Linux based problems. No one is doing spy on you. There is no fear of viruses (Not even that Wanna Cry). You can freely theme, choose apps, play games, listen to music and video and all other tasks you do in everyday life.

Told you enough reasons. Now as you want to know the preparations you have to do to switch is below.
