The Trench Reynolds Report

Without truth there is no justice

It’s been a while since I got to play with Linux. My Toshiba laptop is Linux-proof for some reason and the Asus EEE 701 4G has been in active duty. Now I have another netbook and it came with Windows 7 which was great. I became dependent on a lot of Windows only programs, the Rockmelt browser for example.

Then after a couple of months Windows 7 took forever to not only boot up but to connect to wi-fi as well. My netbook is an Acer Aspire which I know is very Linux friendly so I went and installed Zorin OS, my favorite Linux distro, and it has been the difference between night and day when it comes to speed.

I recommend that you should install Linux on your computer but dual-boot with Windows for those one or two Windows programs that you can’t live without.

    1. Not just USB but I couldn’t get it to boot through CD or DVD either.
