It’s been 12 month since I installed Ubuntu on my netbook and I haven’t looked back. I still have a copy of windows 10 running as a virtual machine to program radios that I haven’t been able to find software to program then via Linux.
My netbook breathed it’s last breath a few month ago and I now have acquired 2 Dell laptop’s to replace the netbook. One is an i5 processor and the other is an i7. Both machines are very fast and I’m very happy with them.
I have recently downloaded Raspbian X86_64 to learn to program basic thing on a Raspberry Pi. I installed it on my NETBOOK in DUAL-BOOT mode only to learn very quickly that to use it as the main OS it was very restrictive for what I wanted to do that wasn’t related to Raspberry Pi stuff and so looked for something similar.
I then Downloaded Ubuntu 19.04 and installed in Dual-Boot mode replacing the Raspbian OS. Both Raspbian and Ubuntu are based on DEBIAN a leading Linux version.
If you would like to try it Raspbian, you can download it from the RASPBIAN website HERE
Or if you want to try Ubuntu, you can download it HERE
