    @programmingTrtl Yes, it is. Its trying to install ubuntu desktop, but its not working. debian 9 has giant cpu load issues, so i ended up installing ubuntu 14.04.5

    @programmingTrtl Thats the problem. I recommend to buy yourself a pc (something like raspberry pi for example) and experiement on that. And then something like a linux distro and youre good to go.

    @programmingTrtl that's what virtual machines are for

    @programmingTrtl @shai is right. Download VirtualBox (It's free) and Ubuntu or Linux Mint(both free) and learn to your heart's content!

    The solution is obviously to not use Ubuntu /s

    Replaced W10 on my school laptop with Manjaro XFCE this week and I'm loving it.

    @jepp73 Thank you!!! That was incredibly helpful! Right, i could have used debian. Oh wait, i tried. Or Arch. Sorry i am not into free betatesting and dont want to fix every fucking thing. CentOS. Are you kidding? Everything else: too untested.

    Ubuntu 14.04 is a bit old though. I'd try 16.04 LTS (or higher), newer kernels have better hardware support. You'd move from 4.4 to 4.8 kernel.

    On Mint I had to upgrade all the way to the 4.12rc6 kernel before my new motherboard was usable.

    The opposite of the Arch way is Ubuntu/Mint, which are conservative in including new stuff... which often means slightly worse hardware support.

    @bittersweet Well, the laprop is from 2011, so i doesnt really matter. And the major objective was stability, because as i stated above, debian 9 and ubuntu 17.04 left me (and i had problems with 16.04 as well in the past). Sigh. Seriously, windows 7 is easier.
