Runs great on lower spec'd systems.
Close to a "Windows experience" as any in Linux, IMO.

It is very stable and durable and consistent.

Re: suggested DNS servers

What do you recommend I use as a DNS server? Currently I use Google's but it has been suggested that this is not such a good idea. Why is it not a good idea?

Re: Does Rufus alter the iso?

The mp4 analogy makes zero sense to me, I don't see how that is like this, possibly just because I don't know what this is. How about it's more of the situation, where Rufus has to update Itself, - rather than the ISO is being altered. It's simple. You are offered a choice, read and decide If it do...

Re: Does Rufus alter the iso?

I guess Rufus "alters" the ISO by adding the bootloader, but it doesn't *change* the files from the ISO does it? Negative. Negative. Negative. Rufus is using an older version of a driver it wants to download. Older than the one the ISO says it is using. How about "How come my 8 Track Player won't p...

Re: ISO to USB

I will not reinstall Windows just to use one program. There has to be something available that will let me do the job using Linux M...

Re: Linux email and email address package

Have a look at https://protonmail.com/

Not sure if it is solely web-based, or can be used with an email client, such as Thunderbird, Icedove, other.
