Well that's good news..so what size usb stick do I need and would putting linux on it actually wipe windows off?.
I put mine on an 8GB but probably would use a 16GB or 32GB next time just for added storage space. Linux reformats as it needs so anything on it will be lost. The default format for installed Linux on an HDD/SSD is ext4 but the USB drive shows ISO9660 when looking at it in GPARTED. Windows can't read it, wants to format it.Well that's good news..so what size usb stick do I need and would putting linux on it actually wipe windows off?.
My favorite lite distro is Zorin LiteWell you've opened my eyes on the subject guys..the reason I ask is..my Lenovo idea pad 330 laptop is so slow with windows 10, but may be it would slow on Linux too..I know I ask a lot of questions on here and I have been computing for years..but windows 10 seems so cumbersome and slower than 7 which I thought was an excellent product.
When you say Light, do mean on a boot up that Linux would over ride Windows boot up ?A nice long list of various Linux versions at the link below. For older hardware I recommend the following.
All are pretty light!. They all have LTS (Long Term Support) versions which gives you at least 3 years of support before you need to upgrade!.
Lite means, it's not resource heavy on ones hardware.When you say Light, do mean on a boot up that Linux would over ride Windows boot up ?
