Windows 10 was the last straw. I decided to get away from Windows.
In April, I installed a NAS that was fully redundant. That allowed me to save files across platforms. All of my devices are now working with the same exact files, all of which synchronize with each other. No more thumb drives, and I am always working with the most recent version of any file.
Two weeks later, I tried to change over to Ubuntu. I decided that I didn’t really like it. I then tried Linux Mint. I am running the MATE version of Linux Mint, and it is a great OS. After using a Windows based system since Windows 3.1- which came out in 1992, I have a bit of a learning curve, but I have already gotten the new system to do most of what I need it to do.
