Greetings. I used to use Ubuntu & was quite happy with the LTS (8, then 12, I want to say). My computers did all I needed.
I recently tried Ubuntu 18 and was not impressed.
Can anyone steer me to a reliable forum on the Web that will help me to get an OS that is free and will pretty easily replace Win7?
For me, the Ubuntu apps store (or whatever they call it) was a mess. I had apps installed as duplicates, when I ran Ubuntu 18 on an XPS 9370.
I will gladly take the time to learn a new OS… I just need some help discovering/deciding on one that is usable enough to make my 70 year old Mother comfortable.
Am looking to run it on desktops (GIMP, LibreOffice, Audacity, sophisticated Scanning of photographs, Firefox, K3B, a Jukebox app like gmusicbrowser that handles giant collections).
Maybe Ubuntu is good and I just need to make some tweaks to the interface?
Any help and guidance is appreciated, public or private. A Hearty GUI is preferred over command line for my purposes if possible.
Am like a n00b again after all these years. Ubuntu seems to have taken a turn for the worse, based on my recent testing. But I’d love to be wrong about that. Thanks
Where should I turn?
