    Re: How to change windows 7 to Ubuntu Linux?

    Which 1 better, continue using Win7 or change to Ubuntu ? Please answer this. Im confuse now. but interesting with Ubuntu.
    Your response on a windows forum is likely to be windows, on an Ubuntu forum, Ubuntu. I would suggest dual boot until you can decide this. I don't use windows but there's a learning curve

    If you just replace windows7 by ubuntu the installing is simpler (automatic partitioning) and you will learn ubuntu quicker.

    Re: How to change windows 7 to Ubuntu Linux?

    It's a question of how you use your pc/notebook. If you just want to browse some websites, chat with some friends and do some stuff on facebook, you are fine with installing Ubuntu as the only OS on your computer.

    if you need your computer for work and rely on windows applications, a dual boot system is a good way. Sure, you can get a lot of windows applications to run on ubuntu, but sometimes it can give you a headache.

    Good luck!

    perfectly said cofeecat....
    one should use different OSs to feel the difference between them..
    otherwise one becomes bias towards a particular os.
    happy computing

    No one can answer that question other than you ...

    It really depends on how well each of the two (Win7 vs Ubuntu) meets your needs, works best with your hardware, provides the apps you want/need to use.

    It is important to note that they are not clones, that is, Ubuntu is not a free version of Win7; instead, it is an alternative to Win7. Despite what some will tell you, it will not do everything that Win7 does because that would require being able to do everything that the OS does as well as every single MS Windows app -- and that's not possible.

    You'll really only be able to make the decision after you've used Ubuntu for a while and decide which is best for your needs.
    Mint 15 & 16; MS Win7 & Win8.1.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.

    Glad you liked it, but this thread is old and needs putting back to sleep.
