    Re: Can I Let Windows 10 Go?

    Windows tends to muck up a lot of Linux things. It defaults to hogging the whole disk and does not even pretend to work well with other OSes. It also defaults to secure boot and fast boot, which play...

    As if you needed any more input. But FWIW, here are my two bits:

    [ubuntu] Re: Setting up folders on HDD

    Not your /home folders if that's what you mean. Installing from scratch would wipe them. Always remember to backup before proceeding. It would still be a good idea to try Focal out on a LiveUSB...

    Re: CTRL + ALT + F7 shortcut

    Re: CTRL + ALT + F7 shortcut

    It depends on the version. If I recall correctly, with Bionic, the Desktop was still F7.
