I am a retired former Systems Administrator. The last almost 20 years was supporting Windows servers. After retiring, I still wanted to play with computers, but need to keep costs reasonable. When Windows XP went unsupported, I found a nice Linux replacement for my old netbook. Now, a couple years later, I am getting serious about switching. This project is part of my path to freedom.
This presentation describes the installation of Ubuntu GNOME 16.04 to dual boot with Windows 10 Home on an HP Spectre x360-13 laptop. Previously, I had been using Linux in a virtual machine on Windows. After the update, there was a very significant improvement in performance working in Linux without the Windows/VM overhead. It turned out to not be difficult and was certainly worth doing.
