Why would you move the taskbar to the bottom?
all the cool kids have it up the top

Not KDE/Plasma masterrace

Great DE choice. xfce is nice looking

When I'm in Firefox, I think having the taskbar on top with my tabs and search bar is too cluttered.

What made you feel the need to make a blog post like this

that's actually a very good point
I think I might move mine to the bottom now

Well I've been using a linux distro for the past couple years and I'd like to encourage others to make the jump. For the longest time I couldn't get flash videos to play smoothly and configuring everything else always pissed me off to the point where I reverted to Windows. As of now, I don't see ever going back.

I've been using linux at work exclusively on an 8 year old laptop that had vista. It works great as everything I need at work is web based. I got a new hybrid laptop/tablet and the thing is so frustrating. Windows 10 irks me and getting linux to work seamlessly on such a device is not going well. It's a Lenovo so I was pleasantly surprised by the driver support. Ubuntu supports everything on it from bluetooth, to the touchscreen and the wifi. Fedora wont work with it though.

The interface on ubuntu blows though and the laptop uses a 1080 screen. I want to try a different version that doesn't use unity to see if I have better luck with something else.

>>52355916
Can't you use Xubuntu or something with a different DE? Besides the social stigma, what's really wrong with ubuntu besides unitiy

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.
Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called “Linux”, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use.
Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine’s resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called “Linux” distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

I can, I just need to figure what will work best with a touch screen

Save your battery life and trade your laptop in for something without touch. Shit's a fad anyways, just like 3D television was.

How do you edit 4k videos without any decent software?

>>52357119
depends on what you'll do with that laptop but if you wanna run linux anything with intel graphics is a safe bet, also be sure that the wifi is not broadcom and you should be fine. Just avoid AMD gpu's.

Yeah, I sometimes get the opportunity to use Windows 10 and literally can't figure half of it out. I can configure things the way I like, save on resources, and do everything I did on windows on my machine now. I don't play games though, something for you to take into consideration.

>windows 10

Main thing that has deterred me from using a Linux-based OS is the lack of software,drivers, and compatible games. How has that shit been lately? Remember trying one out and the shit would only work w/ Ethernet and I was too autistic at the time to research it in-depth so I just reverted to Win7.

>>52358777
As long as you're not using some obscure third world knockoff hardware, Linux is fine on drivers.

If you happen to use a computer that is 100% Intel, Linux is better when it comes to drivers than Windows.

As for games, it highly depends on what you want to play. More and more games are getting their Linux ports, but it is still a very limited selection compared to Windows, and even OS X.
