As a final note: I can hardly remember my life with Windows, although I was quite a power user at the time. I am so much more satisfied with GNU/Linux that (even with the occasional driver glitches and lack of certain killer apps) I am glad that all that M$ mess is finally behind me.
I strongly suspect/believe Ubuntu to be a Trojan horse within the Free Software movement/community. A way to try to control it, and divert it from its real or original purposes.
I am currently thinking about migrate to Trisquel which is endorsed by FSF & GNU (visit : http:///distros/free- )

One of the first questions people ask when contemplating a switch to Linux is whether they can run a specific program. When we have only ever used one operating system, we tend to view apps as components any computer should be able to run. But in most cases, an app is actually designed to run on only one operating system. In order to run on a different one, developers have to build a separate version. The Windows version of Steam doesn&rsquo t run on macOS, and vice versa. Linux, too, needs its own version.
Backing up is not difficult, but it can be tedious if you have lots of data scattered around. The easiest way to save your files is to plug an external hard drive into a USB port.
And the last thing, if I want to install a new Ubuntu OS, I use Clonezilla or Urbackup who are faster and simple compared with PXE.
I even grab packages from experimental sometimes. Right now, I have git, iceweasel , and GCC with x87 support taken from there.
