Ditching Windows 10 for Linux Mint: confession of a geeky woman

Mørnings peepels.

Much to my shame I must admit I’ve only today stumbled about blogreader Miracles Happen’s success story … or maybe I saw it earlier already when skimming her blog but totally misjudged the potential and reblogability of this wonderful empowering and useful post.

So me’s gonna reblog it here now:

Everything is a Miracle

Windows 10 got on my nerves so many times that I often felt like smashing the laptop against a wall: luckily, I didn’t do it!

When an update of Windows 10 finally rendered my old laptop completely useless (read the full story here), I was forced to buy a new one but I obviously didn’t want to hear about Windows ever again in my life!!!

  1. Some additional remarks if I may please:
    1) What Miracles didn’t tell us was that the Windows update wasn’t to blame for bricking her laptop. She shut it down in the middle of the ongoing update process = recipe for disaster. 😮

    2) Her laptop at that time was a very underpowered Lenovo amateur thingie with an Atom cpu, which was Intel’s lowest line of procis. I wonder how that thing was even able to run on Win10 at all.

    Still this is a very nicely done and detailed tutorial on how to get from gutter to palace in just a couple minutes. And let’s not forget, Miracles is a sister! If she can do it and even Orca can do it, you must finally try it yourself!!! You owe yourself this favour!
