xu-help82wanyone here?06:55
xu-help82wi need help with linux os06:55
xu-help82wi am new ti this thing and i m currently using windows os06:56
pmjdebruijnjust ask your question, and wait a little06:57
xu-help82wok, thank you06:59
xu-help82wi stumbled upon a lot linux distros and i am confused. Which linux distro is the most lightweight, for beginner, looks like windows7, os up to date, and free of virus?07:01
pmjdebruijnnone look like windows7 really07:05
pmjdebruijnand almost all linux distros but a few are fairly user friendly07:05
pmjdebruijnand it's not common for linux distros to have virusses for various reasons07:05
pmjdebruijnxubuntu really is not a bad place to start07:05
pmjdebruijnxubuntu is not the most lightweight distro around, but it's not a heavyweight either07:06
pmjdebruijnwhile still remaining functional/convenient07:06
pmjdebruijnmost super lightweight distros do so, by being less functional/convenient07:06
pmjdebruijnso I would not recommend starting with a super lightweight distro07:08
pmjdebruijnxu-help82w: you can download xubuntu, put it on a usb drive, and at least briefly use it directly from the usb drive, before installing it07:09
xu-help82wif i download xubuntu, will my file in windows D directory moved to xubuntu os?07:13
xu-help82wabout put it on usb drive = put the os in a flashdisc?07:13
pmjdebruijnxu-help82w: the xubuntu install will copy migrate any of your files, I highly recommend backing up all your files to a usb drive before install xubuntu07:23
pmjdebruijnxu-help82w: there many videos on youtube that illustratie how to create a bootable stick with xubuntu, I highly recommend watching one of those, given that will be much clearer07:24
pmjdebruijnbut as I said, I highly recommend playing with xubuntu from a live usb drive before installing07:24
pmjdebruijnxu-help82w: keep in mind that any non-windows OS will not be a 1:1 replacement for Windows, a lot a things will be somewhat different07:25
pmjdebruijnxu-help82w: some people "play" with linux first in a virtual machine like VirtualBox/HyperV before moving to linux as their main os07:25
xu-help82wvirtual machine?07:27
xu-help82wwhat is that?07:27
pmjdebruijnxu-help82w: I don't have time to explain everything, please do a little research on your end, google/youtube are your friends07:28
xu-help82wok, thanks for your informations07:29
pmjdebruijnxu-help82w: also keep in mind that windows applications do not run on linux07:29
pmjdebruijn(at least not easily/reliably)07:29
pmjdebruijnthat may or may not be an issue for you07:30
pmjdebruijnthough for most things there are similar alternatives, but they will take getting used to07:30
xu-help82wthe only windows program i use is microsoft office word and excell07:30
pmjdebruijnxu-help82w: you won't be able to use those anymore of course07:30
pmjdebruijnbut libreoffice is similar07:30
pmjdebruijnxu-help82w: btw, you can install LibreOffice on Windows, to try that on Windows first07:31
xu-help82wok, thank you :)07:31
pmjdebruijnif you get used to libreoffice on windows first, the transition to linux will be a little bit easier I guess07:32
