|Elementary OS Install Screen|
As someone who uses macOS and Windows very often and Ubuntu sparingly, I figured it was time for me to find out what I was missing out on. Questions about Windows 10 security and my love for open-source programs led me to install Elementary OS, a popular GNU/Linux distribution. It is completely open-source and relies on user donations to stay afloat. This version of Elementary OS is 0.4.1 Loki, released May 17, 2017. The developers behind this operating system are firmly against ads, tracking, and create many different pieces of open-source software. Please note that I will not be using the terminal or anything any Linux power-user would use, as I wanted to use this as a grandmother or child would, Email, web browsing, music, and other simple things.
