Windows Blah

I am not a windows fan, however, with everything I do I need a computer running some sort of windows on it. I expressed this to my husband when he talked me into going to linux. I was getting viruses every time I turned around. Every six months I was having to back everything up and do clean installs. This was no fun!

Once I get things set up the way I like them, I don’t want to have to redo it every time I turn around. Switching to Ubuntu was one of the best decisions I could make! I can surf the web faster and I don’t have to worry about getting infected. Plus, most everything for it, is FREE!

Recently, I have ran into a few issues, so I was left pondering on what to do. With the things I do on-line, I often have webinars to attend and I have been having problems viewing them with Ubuntu, I also just received a device that needs windows or mac to sync (you will learn about this product soon. )  Not to mention the fact HP was refusing to help fix their printer because they don’t support the OS I use.

With all this weighing on my shoulders I decided I would see about doing a dual boot. Then when things arise in which I need  a window based system I can easily switch over and everything be fine. I was dreading this task… But I knew it needed to be done. As I got everything backed up to format the computer, and reinstall windows with a partition for Ubuntu as well, the cd/dvd rom decided it wasn’t going to read the disc. I tried several times with no luck!

I finally said forget it, and decided I would take my daughter’s laptop, and install windows on it. She never uses it so I reckon I will use that as the window base computer, so I can still use Ubuntu for my everyday tasks.

I started this task bout 6pm yesterday, it is now almost 4pm and I think I have everything in order. Maybe now HP will actually help me solve the problem at hand.
