I'm a long time Windows user (3.1/95/98/XP/7) and a beginner to Linux distros. Hopefully I'll be able to learn enough to help me pick the distros which may work best for my needs. I started using Linux as an attempt to revive my old single-core laptop which originally ran on Windows XP. I was very happy with the result it prompted me to buy a new laptop with Quad-Core processor (erased the preloaded Windows 10), so I can explore the full capability of Linux.
Though the result has been 90% disappointment on the new laptop so far, I am optimistic I shall be able to sort this out with the help of the Linux community.
I always get in trouble every time I point out the emperor has no clothes on.
