    Good choice. In case you like Linux you could also try out Arch. It's my fav distro but hasn't got a graphical installer :)

    Nice move. I'm about to completely erase windows from my main machine. The linux subsystem isn't really enough right now...

    i'd suggest xubuntu if you're going the ubuntu route;
    i mostly prefer Arch however. You should take a look at antergos, it's an out-of-the-box easy arch installation,
    (i'd suggest KDE as the desktop. it lets you choose during the install)

    Better use Xubuntu or Ubuntu Mate. Unity sucks so hard.

    Few years back, when I was in University, I used to think like how come people code 2, 3 days straight.

    In the past 2 days, I didn't even sleep more than 30 mins. May be a nap., I guess.

    Now I get it. This is passion. This is life.

    There are some great and easy to install themes for ubuntu. Then your notebook doesn't look like 8 years old but fresh as new. This default theme is not very pleasing in my opinion. I use a theme called Arc (dark) in my ubuntu install if I remember correctly.
