    I have a machine that has an I7 16 gigs of ram, 64 bit. The problem is i have a mouse problem with all distros. the mouse gets stuck on the top, the only os that doesnt happen with is Ubunuti, there really is no clear fix. I am replacing windows 8.1. Looks like its going to be Ubuntu for now.

    Imagine that, just once, Microsoft re-wrote Windows and cut out all the bloat, and made every part of it work correctly, and made it possible to develop for it with any tool you choose, even a simple text editor if you wanted to, and then the gave it to you for the cost of the media you copied it to.

    That's Linux

    My husband has been working with an advance copy of Windows 10 at work for a few months now. He said it seems like they learned from their massive fail with 8, so we'll see.
