You won't be sorry. There are other Linux OS, Mint for example, but I like Ubuntu personally. And Firefox comes preloaded too. And the price is right too, free. There is nothing that I have found that Windows did that Linux can't after running it for a few years. For some users, maybe there would be maybe. Me, nothing. But if there is something MS you just have to have, you can download the program called "wine" and that will run it.
I just got tired of all that MS bullshit. I haven't looked back. Linux rules! Apparently, Linux is designed more like Apple and not as vulnerable to virus too. Most viruses are written to work in IE, the industry leader, too, of course.
It asks you if you want to dual boot too, so you keep windows if you want, then does it for you, but you may need to partition your hard-drive to make room for it first. I did, and if I did it, anyone can. I did that partitioning stuff on another laptop that I put Mint on, and kept a Winduhs 7 copy, just in case this Ubuntu thing didn't work out. But it has.
So, on this laptop I just bought a small , cheap 160GB hard-drive from ebay for it, just to put Ubuntu on it. Dirt cheap too. Like $20 or something. Computer then ran, and still runs, like a brand new computer, fast. If you do that, just open up the back of your laptop you have now, and write down all the numbers on from the hard-drive on your machine, then order one. Then plug and play the new one. Easy peazy.
I can't decide which I like better: either, arguing on the internet is like winning in the Special Olympics, you might win but you're still retarded; or never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level, and beat you with experience; or you can't fix stupid, so why argue with it? They all are funny, and all are true too.
