    Man are you in for a shock -- What are you going to do when When Microsoft bring out their own version of Linux - it looks like windows, everything is done the same, programs install like now, no bugging for passwords. In every way it will still be windows - but only in looks. A version is already being used for several years now in business, but just not as a public OS.

    That narrows it down to how do I turn on the computer and what's this sign in box want -- Any actual help with ANY problems you know sweet FA !!
    I agree with you about Mint 20. It has many problems, incompatible with a lot of the software, software that used to be free has been 'upgraded' and requires a license, the older versions will not run on it. It is more demanding on resources than Mint 18.3 (the best). The rot started with Mint 19. As for Windows 10, there are several versions, and they can be customized extensively. I use a modified version of W10 Pro 2040, dual booted with Mint 18.3, for graphics, and web sites. It has never missed a beat, and is fast. Boots in 19 seconds with fast boot disabled.

    Now here's a man that knows how to use multi OS's, and whose posts I gladly read

    Like myself and many others, use both all the time, just prefer Windows.

    MS are actually in the process of making a Linux based Windows, they are on The Linux Foundation and like other members spend up to half a million dollars a year to finance the development of Linux.

    They have been using Linux based software (and not meaning mint) on one of the worlds biggest Business platforms for several years after developing it.

    What the public see is only scratching the surface of whats being developed and what plans are being worked on. Some only see whats here today while others can see whats possible in the future and working towards it.

    That figure MUST be completely made up.

    There have been plenty of issues with Win10 , usually due to buggy updates .
    Can we expect perfection, of course not. No excuse to make up statistics though

    Do you realize that 99.5% of statistics have a decimal factor. This is to make them look genuine.

    So let me see, Win10 is good for 50% Mac is good for 10% so Linux must be the remaining 40%.
