I have bitten the bullet.
I installed Ubuntu Linux on my lemon HP laptop, in hopes that at least some portion of its lemonosity is derived from the Windows 10 operating system.
So far… well, it works, at least the basics. I’m updating my blog from the new operating system.
It will take a while to get it all working smoothly. I’m a bit rusty on the linux desktop, since I haven’t used it since I left my desktop behind in Korea, last July.
