The more I use this operating system the more I love it. Yes, it is a little different than Windows but, much faster the interface/desktop is so uncluttered. I recommend trying it. You might wonder why you have been dedicated to Windows for so long. For sure, Linux is much more user friendly today than it was 5 years ago. You may run into a bit of confusion when installing it and formating and partitioning drives. If you have trouble there is help online or leave me a message and I will help you out
