@ FURRY_NOVA - LOL , sounds only slightly better than Windows 3.1. :)
FURRY_NOVA - 29 Jun 2017, 05:48
I was shown it at college for a demonstration on other operating systems.

The internet is full of people saying how great Ubuntu is for compatibility and hardware detection but i stopped using Ubuntu years ago when i couldn't move the side bar :D , so i'm just conveying what over people have to say , but when ever the subject comes up why is Ubuntu so bloated yet so popular with users and Vendors then 'superior hardware detection' is often the reason given , maybe i'm a fool to believe it but i did start my sentence as saying "maybe this is wrong" :)

I've tried many different distributions other month ago. I thought Xubuntu was the most easilest out of the large installs for hard drives. I think it's possible to remove the bloat with apt-get or their program listing app.
FURRY_NOVA - 29 Jun 2017, 05:54
If I recall different distributions had different issues. Like forcing user to have password. No account manager. Some installers were near the same when running on Virtual Box.

I've lost count the amount of times i've nearly installed to the wrong partition or drive. :)
