If you are looking for a user-friendly version of Linux give Ubuntu a try. If you are a power user skip this for something else. BTW - Ubuntu + Plex = Easy to setup media center. Plex + Roku = Lovin' Life.
Sorry, I don't like it, it is not much faster than Windows, although, MUCH less functional, my wireless printer Brother HL-2270DW does not want to work on Ubuntu, unless I start terminal, spend hours on forums trying to find a solution, then enter some code that I don't understand and only then it might start working. I installed Chromium, tried to install something else from their shop and Chromium stopped working, reinstallation didn't help. From my experience Ubuntu is NOT simple to use at all, this OS is mode for enthusiasts and developers.
Viel besser als Windows...
-läuft schneller und ohne Fehler
-mehr Updates (ohne den Computer zu verlangsamen) (und macht sogar automatisch Updates von Software)
