Today we will once again make room for the opinion of one of our loyal readers, Yure Felipeto, he recently sent us an issue that sparked a great debate called "The Refisefuqui's Politics", In today's text he will address some aspects related to migrating to Linux from his own experience. This type of article does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the blog Diolinux on the subject, a space that we open for readers to participate, if you have an interesting text also send us through the reader's area. Check out the text of Yure below:
"Migrating from one operating system to another is not simple. You'll have to change the way you use your PC and get used to a whole new universe. Relearning all over again. In this article I'll talk about migrating from the Microsoft OS, Windows for a GNU / Linux distribution and I will give you some tips on how to get everything into the Linux universe.
Don't be extreme to the extreme.
A simple but effective tip. Don't fall headlong into the unknown, as this can frustrate you and make you more afraid and afraid of change. The change should be gradual and it will make it much easier for you to get used to the new system. Linux has a lot like Windows, except that it's all presented in a new way.
The coolest way to change Dual-boot is to install the distribution next to Windows. Start by reading tutorials on how to do your everyday tasks on Linux and if you need to use Windows. But how? When you use the dualboot option, when you turn on the PC you will be asked which system you want to use and then just select it.
Choose the right district for you.
Read a lot about the various distributions and which school is best for you. A distraction that catches your eye will make you like it more and more and learn more and more. A tip is to review reviews about the distribution and see its strengths and weaknesses.
Distros I recommend to anyone who starts in the penguin world: Linux Mint, Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Deepin and Elementary OS. Linux Mint is the most complete as it needs a few tweaks to have all features and all basic programs come standard. Ubuntu and Kubuntu need more tweaking, but nothing too difficult. J Elementary and Deepin are pretty easy to use, but not 100% ready and more adjustments need to be made. I recommend these distros for their focus, which is the home user.
In the living of idealism.
Keep Windows or Mac on PC at the end of the world. Do not be tied to idealisms and prejudices of some users. Windows for many tasks is more productive than Linux, such as games. I still keep Windows 7 with Ubuntu today, because I haven't had a good Linux performance in games yet.
Many more experienced users are biased against novices and Windows. They are wrong to think that using Linux is superior and so I say: You can be the Jedi master of Windows galaxies and a perfect z nobody using Linux. A system does not define level to a person, so do not fall into small talk.
Wine in the miracle worker!
Wine can help you a lot with Windows programs on Linux systems, but it sure doesn't work miracles. Don't keep trying to turn Linux into Windows by installing all your favorite Windows programs. You should look for substitutes for the programs. In Linux there are several programs that can replace Windows programs, such as GIMP to replace Photoshop; LibreOffice to Replace Microsoft Office and so on.
I hope these tips have made your migration and use of the new operating system a little easier. Go ahead with the change and WELCOME TO GNU / LINUX! "
