I want to switch from winblows 10 to linux, is ubuntu the easiest and most compatible distro to install?
ubuntu is very good,but i myself didnt liked it.its a resource hog,copies the UI of OSX ,and is very restricted in terms of customisation(left bar cant be moved etc...). i'd rather advise the use of linuxmint cinnamon edition.(and its more windows like which is good for a beginner)
Mint is great for Windows converts, as are some of the Ubuntu Flavors (Xubuntu, Ubuntu MATE, Lubuntu, Lubuntu).
I personally love Unity though so standard Ubuntu is my favorite. I also love Ubuntu GNOME.
Honestly use Mint > standard Ubuntu. Ubuntu based, easy to use, and great design.
I messed up the grub on my installation so when I boot the grub menu doesn't come up and the only way to switch from Linux mint to windows 10 is to change the bios mode from legacy for Linux to uefi for windows,, is there any way to fix this? I mean it works but it is a pain to switch
How do I do it with reinstall? Would I delete the Linux partitions and switch to uefi to install from? Last time I tried that it never worked, but that time I didn't use rufus to make the boot usb, I used pendrivelinux I think
Ubuntu is alright (also look at the other buntus like xubuntu, lubuntu, kubuntu and ubuntu gnome), Mint as well. Find something you think looks great.
The good thing about ubuntu and mint is that everything works out of the box and you dont need to manually install drivers and shit.
