    Best Linux for me


    I have a new laptop and it came with windows 8. So far I hate it and it is too slow. I will mainly us this pc for surfing. So I would like something streamlined and fast. I would also like something like remote access.

    If your computer came with windows 8, you will need to read about Secure Boot before you try installing Linux. You could check the links below for other peoples opinions:

    Also the distrowatch site below has a lot of links and info. AntiX is a fast distribution you could google for info on.

    Hello and wecome!

    Good advice, that offered by yancek. In addition, you might be able to disable some Win8 services and/or eyecandy that could speed up performance.

    Otherwise, I think you will enjoy running Linux if you give it a trial and a fair chance. Let us know how it goes...
