It seems like just yesterday (actually a month ago) that I gave a list of reasons why I couldn’t shift to Linux from Windows. The my PC’s motherboard decided to join its ancestors in the great landfill in the sky. I would have had to replace so many components that I might as well have bought a new computer, so I decided to get a Linux laptop. It came with Endless OS which I didn’t like because I couldn’t use it without registering, so I got Ubuntu 16.04 and Windows 10 installed as dual boot.
I’ve been using it for about 10 days now in Ubuntu (booted W10 only once to check that it worked). I must say that the transition has been fairly easy, or perhaps it is just a case of ignorance is bliss. I must admit to being nervous connecting to the internet when using an OS whose security features I am unfamiliar with.
Ubuntu’s software centre makes it easy to get older versions of RawTherapee and Gimp, but getting the latest version is a bit of a challenge. RawTherapee was quite simple with clear instructions on the website but I couldn’t even find a download for Gimp. Guess I still have a lot to learn.
