I just found this site through Google - looks like a lot of good resources and people here.

I am an old guy and I am getting pretty tired of Microsoft spewing out massive changes with every update, while dragging along every bad idea they have had since Gates hired the clueless from DEC to write his network software.  Yeah I am Old.

I am vacillating over whether to dump this (Win 10) OS and install Linux or or perhaps even boat anchor my PC's and get a (ugh - proprietary) Mac.  But here I am and this thing is running again (crash - wipe - reinstall) so maybe I can garner enough good info from the people in this community to tame this beast as perhaps the least effort and/or expense.  Anyway, that is what I am doing here and so I just wish everyone who might also be rooting through this mess the best.


And Thank You to all who are working to keep this site up!

G'day coybot, and Welcome to BC


The guys and girls in Win 10 area (including myself) will sort out your install of win 10...as well as it can be sorted out. Good Luck with that.....


As you will see from my signature I am a relatively recent convert to Linux (linux mint 17.3 cinnamon), and am enjoying every minute of it.


Why do I enjoy it I hear you ask....no crashes, no wipes, no reinstalls.


It just works

Condobloke ...Outback Australian  fed up with Windows antics...??....LINUX IS THE ANSWER....I USE LINUX MINT 18.3  EXCLUSIVELY.

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy
