Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "In this chapter from the ExtremeTech book 'Hacking Ubuntu: Serious Hacks Mods and Customizations' you'll learn how to set up the operating system to your taste with things like changing the startup music, the background, fonts, icons, and colors, and navigating the Nautilus file manager - on both PCs and Macs." The book was written for an older version of Ubuntu but it still largely applies for Feisty Fawn too.

1. Install Windows
2. Install Drivers that came with PC and Software (no internet connection required)

3. Install all the little software that comes standard on Linux, but not on Windows.

Windows doesn't even come with a PDF viewer! It's almost completely useless out of the box. In a single-CD install, Ubuntu comes with pretty much everything you'd need on your run of the mill office desktop.

4. Install the antivirus and anti-adware apps that you don't need with Ubuntu.

5. Rent the safety deposit box at the bank for the Windows install CD and activation keys; You're desperately going to need them in the future.

Another duplicate post. Sincerest apologies on my silly freck up. My bad. ;-)
