  1. Tengo installed Xubuntu LTS read this script serves? I support Linux but I've encountered problems that make me return to my question is when Windows no distribution satisfy you think it is better to stay in Windows? For example the office I always change the format so I lose a lot of time reconfiguring documents after use both xubuntu as Windows printers do not work on networks no drivers for printers I use most Games Runner lousy between

    1. For xubuntu tendría to change several things. If I have time next month prepare some script for other distributions derived from ubuntu.
      As for your problems linux is not a field of roses, pero windows tampoco, each has its strengths and weaknesses, Driver problems are becoming smaller but still continue to occur, with printers long ago that I have no problem recording more or less I work all, games to see if steam fixes it but now is not the right platform if you are gamer.
      Also encourage you to say that the learning curve improves greatly over time, take years with windows and you know many things, to start with something you can not claim back from the same point with something that many years have you been using, keep trying and see how at the end you get with this system.

  3. Good, a solution for those peripherals that give more problems in GNU / Linux is not buy, namely, before buying do a search on google and other search engines followed the exact model of the word 'ubuntu’ o ‘linux’.
    Before loosening the pulp need to inform and besides not eat a poor peripheral, casts with briefcase to make them compatible with all.
