I bought my first computer when I started the journey of my B.Tech education. I didn’t know anything about linux and also much more about operating systems. I bought Dell vostro 15 which is a very low-end pc for me. And windows 10 is not good for intel i3 5th gen. It's very slow and takes a lot of time to update. Update package is very high in data. I have to give all of my internet data plan to Windows 10 for update. But I see the computers in my college, lot of computers have Linux based os ubuntu and it was very simple to use. Then I started to collect the information about Linux based operating systems and decided to install Linux on my laptop.
I download Linux based os Ubuntu 18.0 LTS which is completely Free and Open-Source and then installed besides Windows 10. I experienced a lot of features on Ubuntu and don’t need to install any kind of antivirus because it is hard to get viruses on linux.
But linux is not simple to use until you don't know about coding and basic programming. Because in linux we have to use code on terminal to get any new software or feature. But it is best for computer science students.
