It took less than 5 minutes to load Ubuntu Mate 18.04 LTS on my Laptop (10 year old I may add). It is screaming. Thanks everyone for the help and encouragement. Now start to learn a new operating system Smile

Good to hear it. Hope you make a backup before you experiment too much.

Congrats and welcome to the forum.

Great to see another person keeping an older machine running and a new addition to the global Linux community.

I'm just going to echo what everyone else has said and Welcome to Linux!

Nothing like keeping good computer equipment out of the land fill and making it useful again!
That alone is a good feeling.
Now... "Go Forth and learn all things Linux-ie" Be happy with your new found Linux-ness and have fun!

Always remember, ASK those Questions here! Lots of folks willing to help Here!

I am loving the Linux adventure so far. It's nice to have a command-line to be involved with what you are doing, instead of mindlessly clicking and praying MS did it right. Do I have win10 machines, yes. Do to my employer I must have access to a Win machine to work from home. I am slowly migrating to all Linux for my true home computing.

NICE! Long live old laptops! I'm typing this on a Lenovo x200 running Trisquel.

Loved the X200, needed a bigger screen I digress.
