Re: New to UBUNTU
You should start a thread asking about the pros and cons of MS Windows vs Ubuntu -- but I can tell you honestly, having use both for quite a few years, NO OS can guarantee that you will have "ho hassles" and a "smooth ride without problems". For evidence of this, just visit the various Windows and Linux support forums -- and you will see problems being posted for all those OSs.
will there be no hassles and will it be a smooth ride without problems.
Ubuntu 16.04 Mate, Mint 18 Mate; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
