Having problems with Windows 8 – it simply won’t load at all. Good thing I also routinely run Linux Mint, and I’m almost on there more than Windows these days. Photoshop and and like 2 other programs I need a few times a week I haven’t been able to replace with Linux ones, but even so I’m terribly tempted to ditch Windows for good this time. Apparently I could run those 3 Windows programs via a virtual machine in Linux – I’ve done this on the Windows side before, use a virtual machine and an OS on it, so it’s not totally new to me, but it’s been a while and never done it in Linux.
I’ve also been wanting to buy a bigger hard drive for my laptop for months now but for financial reasons haven’t been able to make it happen. I don’t think it’s failing, I think it’s just Windows, but I’m not sure and I’d like a bigger drive and the Linux partition is growing too small anyway. Propably make it a priority now, having to re-install operating systems, to get that new hard drive. Never bought a laptop hard drive before – have to study that, so I that I don’t get one that isn’t compatible with my laptop :/
Linux should continue working OK and I should be able to continue pretty much normal, but if I do disappear for a while, computer problems are the reason.
