In this series you follow my descent into Linux, the time when I decided to jump from the Microsoft Windows 10 ship into the world of Ubuntu (specifically Xubuntu).
Each post is almost a diary log of sorts that explains the hurdles and successes of the transition. Is 2019 the year for the Linux desktop for me?
In this first introductory post I provide my reasons for jumping off the Windows 10 ship and provide myself a basic plan of things that I need to get working in Linux.
2 days into Linux how am I getting on with it? Am I arming myself with my Windows 10 installation media ready to go back? Am I missing my old favourite applications? Are things truly better in Linux-land? What are the issues I have encountered so far?
