>What software should I use? I don't know the linux ones.
What do you mean? Distro or software to run on distro?

If you're looking for a all around functional distro I would recommend Debian. If you are looking for a lightweight thing then I would suggest Debian with xfce, that's the one I'm using and have encountered very few problems. Avoid anything -buntu if you don't want a bloated mess.


>Avoid anything -buntu if you don't want a bloated mess.
What about Lubuntu or Xubuntu?
But yeah, Devuan would be good, because no systemd


Firstly you need to create partitions in your hard disk you can use a distro called Gparted it is simple and then consider using dual boot your can resize your current windows and use both. Good luck. I recommend Linux Mint


>What about Lubuntu or Xubuntu?
I have messed around with Lubuntu before and, while it was not that bad overall, experience proved its debian counterpart to be better in terms of speed. I also remember regular gnome debian running faster than Lubuntu on an old computer. I think this is due to the fact that Lubuntu comes with much bloat out of the box.

I use Linux Mint on my old core i3 laptop and it runs great, I used ubuntu before but unity is a waste of resources and the other graphic interfaces are not that cool.


I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use.

Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.


Slackware, manjaro or gentoo.
These 3 have been my goto for years.


(((Windows 10)))

Im about ready to stop using windows completely, it's pissing me off lately.

Is Debian a good choice? Currently considering it.




Hmm, I'll have to look into this because I'm currently running Lubuntu and LXDE (got sick and tired of Gnome because eats all ram).


Debian is a pretty good choice.
