I just moved to linux on my desktop. I was running WinXP pro and it was on there for two years and now it is hardly running. I have Virus protection current. Spam guard but just a few weeks ago it slowed down to a crawl. Could not figure out what was wrong with the system. I ran a Linux ISO live and it worked fine and no lags.
I moved to Debian but could not get drivers or functions I needed or wanted so I moved up to Ubuntu. Another one I DO NOT REALLY LIKE BUT IT DOES HAVE WHAT I WANT. It only runs Gnome but I like to have access to several different desktops. If I don't feel like Gnome today I could go to KDE or one of the many others that need to be tried out.
Ubuntu does do what I need and want. It took a week to get it the way I wanted it. That is installing and removing and reinstalling different programs. But that is a work in progress and you learn from your mistakes. That is what makes it more fun than anything in the last 30 years. I feel like pulling out my old Commodore 64 and see if the disks still work.
