I'm at a point now for various reasons where I'm looking to dump windows at home.
The two main reasons are;
1. I'm really not enjoying the windows updates experience that came with Windows 10, and no amount of setting configuration seems to give me what I desire.
2. I'd like to learn more about Linux as a day to day OS. Being a windows sys-admin by day, I want to broaden my experience in the Linux world.
For the most part, everything I do at home is pretty simple - I host SMB shares from my machine for the Media center to connect to, browse the net, I use Outlook (but am looking at migrating to Gmail, or can use Outlook online if needed), I barely play games (only TF2 and CS:GO) and listen to spotify.
I am curious to hear what people are using around here in terms of distro? - I was looking at using Ubuntu- having used it a bit recently for compiling firmware etc. in a VM and testing some tools.
I may install as dual boot for a time, to see if I have any real need to go back to windows, then if things go well, then maybe P2V my windows install to use as a VM if I ever need it.
