I fixed the Windows 10 v2004 update problem

I have been having too many issues with Win 10. After it updated my wife's machine and removed her copy of Office I was pissed. She needed to edit some docs NOW, so I bought a new copy of Office 2019 for her and had her up in 30 minutes. It was faster than trying to get through to a knowledgeable tech support person.

Seeing the impending threat of a new "update" to version 2004, I began looking at alternatives. For 3 months I have been using various versions of Linux and I have found one easy enough for my non - tech wife to use. I have used Deepin, Mint, and several Debian variants. I've settled in Ubuntu 20.04LTS and I'm very impressed by the quality of everything.

This will be the end of windows in our house, and I worked for Microsoft at one point.

1. Too many of us are so intimidated by Linux

that we wont even consider it as an option.

2. I will try my wife on my laptop before I go further

The install was as easy as a Windows install.
