Ditched Windows 10
« on: Aug 29, 2016, 11:14:47 PM »
Once again ditched Windows (10).

Been using Bodhi Linux for nearly a month, and love it.

Default Desktop (image is 1920x1080), will be changing background to one of my own images sometime.

Some apps will not uninstall (remove them, they come back), this is the main thing I hate about it.

Yes, OS, what do you use?

OS = Operating System

Okay, know what you're talking about, Chromium.

I bet it's a Windows system. Chrome is Google's web browser.

Chrome is also an operating system, look up chrome laptops.

Yep and it's based on the Chrome web browser and is therefore best suited for web applications.  Acer does sell quite a few chromebooks.

Actually that's the open source equivalent.  Here is the wikipedia page for Chrome OS

Bodhi Linux is about to release version 4 soon, current stable release is 3.2.1, went out and bought blank CD's to burn version 4 to, starting over.

Will start over only if certain programs works with 4, mainly for the graphics card.

Edit: by the way, used Linux "off and on" for a very long time.

I do not like Windows 10 at all. Bodhi Linux is back on, as of yesterday.
