Have not decided on distro Nitrux or Ubuntu likely. Retired DEL tech want to move to linux and away from Bill Gates and his empire.

Asked by Gary Larsen on 2021-04-12

Retired Del tech with several Del computers and a few home brew like xp and 7. I would like to get enough skill that I can install and use a distro to get on the internet and be able to competently install, use and troubleshoot basic issues. Not interested in learning nuch Linux or writing code or modifying any of the distros unless I receive knowledgeable instructions and advice. Been lurking on several Linux sites and like the people and their attitude, especially the women as they do not have the testosterone problem but come to think of it, at my age 73, neither do I. Looking to find good sources of info and training. From my initial research I was interested in Nitrux or Ubuntu (Del sold a computer that came with Ubuntu) and put Brave on it. Let see where this can take me.

Just install the OS and use it. I'm guessing you are conversant with Windows. How did you learn how to use Windows? Do that but with Linux

The Ubuntu handbook is a good start but if you use the Web to search for how to do a specific thing rather than trying to find information on everything you can do (which is a lot) then you'll be less frustrated

Ubuntu has Kubuntu which has the KDE Plasma desktop simular to Nitrux
https://kubuntu.org/alternative-downloads I would suggest a 20.04 LTS (Long Term Support)
https://ubuntu.com/download/desktop The Ubuntu GNOME version.

Can you help with this problem?
