After forcing my computer through a hard year of Windows, I have abandoned it (a licensed copy btw) in favour of Linux.
The distro I'm using is Ubuntu Budgie because it's really clean (and Ubuntu has enough GUI that a Windows addict like me can transition smoothly).
Setting it up was hell on earth, I tried 2 different USBs, 5 ISOs of 3 flavours of Ubuntu and nothing worked until I actually burned a USB with Rufus and copied the partition of the USB onto my auxiliary SSD, then booted from that. (hint: not the cleanest method)
and then, 4 of my rear panel USB ports stopped working, so I finally mustered the courage to update my BIOS again (my motherboard rejected the last BIOS update I did and I nearly melted into a puddle on the floor when it was bricked)
What are your favourite distros?
