I just switched to Ubuntu....I accidentally deleted Windows 7 while installing Ubuntu 12.04...
No loss...unless you still want windows
I mean I would like to have Windows...I guess it's not really the end of the world. Here's my story for anyone who cares.
-1 year ago I bought a $270 new Asus.
-Windows 7 was so slow on it and I knew Ubuntu would make it a little quicker
-I tried to install with both but for whatever reason Ubuntu wouldn't boot.
-I messed up the partitions and now Windows 7 is gone for good.
-My laptop is SOOO much quicker and smoother.
-Video loads quicker and is crisper
-I don't play PC games so I could care less about that
-LibreOffice ... hear me out... It works FINE for me. I go to a University in Philly so I have a lot of papers I need to write. Libre works great. The issue is that I tend to write papers at home then edit them at school during breaks or when I'm staying with my GF in the city. When I open a Libre formatted paper the format always comes out messed up. Very annoying and makes me worry about emailing papers anyone else.
-Netflix, what the hell...BOOOOO
-iTunes to sync my media with.
Aside from that Ubuntu 12.04 is GREAT. It's like I have a new laptop. I feel like this OS looks much more, modern? Better fonts, Unity Toolbar, ect.
Any tips or tricks I should know about ... maybe apps?
