Re: Favorite Windows NT system?

As annoying as it can be at times, I'd say Windows 10. Windows XP is a great OS, but it's well past its prime, and Windows 7 is excellent as well, but I actually really like Windows 10's interface.

I hear you. I still have my December 2009 Dell Studio 1555, with a Core 2 Duo T6600, 4 GB RAM, and a 500 GB Western Digital Blue hard drive (it dual boots Windows 10 and Ubuntu 16.10).

I used it for a long time since it was the only one that could access software at my university correctly, but now none of them do (I used to run Stata off one of their servers, but onl...

Favorite Linux Distros?

Just wondering if anybody out there has a favorite, or at least preferred, Linux distro (and desktop)? I distrohop a lot, I'm never satisfied. ;) I used to be a big Fedora guy, but I find dnf to be a bit too slow. Right now, my three modern computers (Core 2 Duo and Core i3 laptop, AMD A4 desktop) r...
