The Phoenix arises


I got shod of my old Linux laptop as the battery was dead and two keys had fell off. So I did rather buy me a new HP Spectre laptop. That new laptop is now my Windoze box so my old Windoze PC was surplus. I do have to say, I did rather have the shitzup with the PC as I have regretted moving from Windoze 7 to Windoze 10 on that system. Regretted because Microsoft did rather frack up the updates, as we all know.

That old PC did not happily or at all really update since it was moved to Windoz 10.

I am not sure how far behind that piece of crap Windoze was but I did fire it up to lift stuff off it this last weekend and Windoze complained it needed 8 gig of space to download an update and couldn’t find it. Odd since the machine has a 1.5Tbyte hard drive.

The machine was so slow. What with an extra special indexing widget that had to run for an hour on start up, that slowed the machine to a crawl, just so file searching would be super duper fast, because it was always a good idea to NOT index as you went. That plus other choke points meant that I did go and buy me a 2Tbyte USB drive (had to buy one with USB 2.0 of course for use with the ye olde hardware) since dragging the files I wanted to save, into Onedrive, was (as it turned out) not the quickest option.

So, I did not bother trying to save all the things I probably should have, as I was so spiritually raped by just how clagged up the machine was. It was, in effect, terminal.

In the end, I burnt a DVD with Debian Buster and installed that over the top of the Windoze so I would simply not have to deal with Windoze again on that machine.

Now, with Linux aboard, the machine starts in about a minute. Everything appears instant, compared to what it was.

I hear Windoze market share is decreasing.
