Again, well now what? (OS’s and more OS’s)

Well that was slicker than counting to 7, err I mean to 11 (Windows 7 to 11 updating!)

Well now what? Do I sit on Windows 11 on my laptop and leave it? Or do what I do best and strive for the best and learn about the best OS’s as I seem to always do?

For myself personally I dislike Windows as an operating system and what it stands for. Yet, I understand that my Sweetpea needs that stability and just working every time she fires up the system and wants to do what she wants to do and not have anything mess around with that “want to do stuff”…

Since I want my Sweetpea happy and not grouchy with me, I worked out all the bugs on my laptop and then transferred all I learned and install Windows 11 on her computer. This was a good thing and as I write this I am doing so on a desktop that is very stable and very good for my Sweetpea and it is good for me to do my everyday stuff as I write and dwell deeper into much of what I desire to do. When it works and just works great, do not mess with it…

I guess the best way to put it is this; Windows 11 is good and for my girl it is perfect, yet for me, it is boring and I need to move onward. Besides, I have Windows to do anything I need when I need such an operating system….except, I get bored quickly with OS’s that are stagnate and everything is too stable…

Therefore, it is time for me to search for the next victim of my quest for the best OS that I can play with. That is not boring and the challenges to overcome are what makes it worth doing. Linux is the only place for me and that is that…

We have three viable (as in the sense of useful) computers right now:

1. Sveta’s work computer is a Lenovo Yoga that I won in Estonia at a raffle…

Center Hotel – Tallinn, Estonia Just wonderful… (Coffee Time)

I do not touch it except to update what Windows says I should and she has a stable platform in Windows 10 to do what she does for work and not have any issues. That is good and why Windows is a good thing and the Yoga is one sweet laptop and I am glad that I was able to get such a device and find a use for it in the real world. 1 Euro at a raffle and what a deal…

2. The desktop I built years ago…

Honey I blew up the computer, so lets have coffee…

In 2017 I killed the old desktop and now it is almost 5 years old soon. That is a long time in computer years….hey it is five lifetimes in a tiny mouse in your house years. Longtime for somethings in our life…

Yet, I just gave it many more years of life….so here is to 5 more years!

3. My laptop that has about 1 year and then I will need to think about what to do…

Maibenben Laptops (XiaoMai 6Pro-E5100)

Yes I can keep it going for 10 more years….but that is no fun as I strive forward and forward some more everyday to keep up with the times and the OS’s calling my name…

About a year and I will be getting grouchy at the inability to perform the upgrades the way I appreciate doing such things….gotta have one computer that does it all and my laptop is such as that computer for that function…

It is a powerhouse after I have done my tricks of the trade on it….yet, I see a 10 Gen processor getting old and limited to 32 GB of RAM is getting old and only a 248 GB SSD getting old and I am getting old and both the laptop and I will need some rejuvenation in some form…. 😉

Those are my thoughts today….just started to download a new Linux as I write this….Oh Boy! I can’t wait…
