    "Perfect alternative to Windows"

    April 21, 2013  |   By chandlerbailey_

    Version: Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal)

    Pros

    Free. Fast. Open. SAFE (no worries about viruses). Completely customizable to how I want. Very often updated. Supports all my hardware (including HP printer). Plenty of viable alternatives to commercial and proprietary software. Lots of help online when needed. Decent boot/shut down speeds (I dont have the best hardware)

    Cons

    The odd program may not have a good alternative. Still a few notifications about errors but those are getting more and more seldom seen. Some drivers of cheaper devices (i.e. a Lexmark printer) may not be easily compatible.

    Summary

    Switched from Windows in September 2012 and never looking back. I tried Windows 8 but my graphics card wasn't supported so I couldn't play some games. This works great, especially with LibreOffice, Firefox, Skype, and Java (games like Minecraft).
