After destroying my old laptop, specific some hardware and cables, finally got me the opportunity to buy a new one and not just repairing the old laptop again and again.
But buying a new very good laptop with a lot of memory, ssd, and other good features that I needed it, got also with windows 11. I wasn’t happy in the beginning, because it meant for me to install ubuntu. Because I loved ubuntu, and that’s for a 20-40 minute installing I had a great operating system ready for work and leisure. I didn’t want anything else, no drivers, no need to worry about viruses or broken features, or even blue screens.
I tried to install ubuntu, but failed again and again with every method…
Somehow (I don’t know why), every usb stick or externall hard drive when it had linux operating system ready or even burned iso files to install ubuntu they weren’t working on my new Dell Laptop. For a minute a thought passed to put my old hard drive with the ubuntu to this new laptop, but I didn’t want to destroy the guarantee and open the backside of the laptop.
It’s a new laptop and the prices have raised a lot, I didn’t want to try and destroy it even with an accident.
So before continue to change the hard drive, I decided to look what windows 11 have and if I can continue to use them.
With a surprise, I didn’t expect to be a total ready system working. No drivers needed to install, no other software for camera, screenshots, videoplayer, or anything else.
Everything was ready, like a linux operating system. And that is great. Even it has the store which makes it easy with one click to download apps.
But still worrying!
I am not sure windows have fixed all the errors of the past, like blue screens, destroyed updates, viruses security, and other that makes windows less safe than anything else operating system.
But why not give it a try? I surely will, but with the first fail of the system i will just return to linux (ubuntu) and the stability it gives me of having a safe and working computer.
