constant change is here to stay

Funny thing. When I dual boot my Windows gets activated, obviously running in a virtual machine inside Linux it won't be activated but its not crippled in any meaningful way. I mean you can't customize the background etc but I logged in using my Outlook email and it uses the last background I had on my previous install because its synced with my Microsoft acct.Nice, Windows doesn't even ask you for a key anymore
I'm a compulsive builder/fixer/tinkerer. In the fall I sold my custom built pc (8th gen intel quad core i3 built in 2018) because I was going to build a brand spanking new Ryzen system. I got this Lenovo 4th gen pc for $90 Canadian without a hard drive as a temp computer until the Ryzen got built.I think you get a performance hit because your CPU is so old, them new Ryzen CPUs can run games, capture video and stream the output, all the while the machine running in a VM without a sweat.
My CPU is a generation older than yours, under W10 with every semiannual feature update it was getting more sluggish, with Pop is like a new machine.
VGA? That is really old. VGA being phased out and definitely not found on monitors with high resolutions. VGA cant do 4k, not even close.You're right for most it's enough. Only I would like is a 4k monitor, mine has an old VGA connector sans a video card so can only do 1080p.
I tried using RedHat back in the mid 90's and would rather stick a fork in my eye than go through that nonsense ever again. It was very difficult.I was compiling kernels and installing from floppies back in the day. Early Red Hat distros.
Having said all this I find that I don't actually hate or dislike Windows but I really prefer the Linux way. Basic, simple, not bloated, stable, fast.

Thanks, just added it to Firefox.I'm the same, I don't hate windows but got used to the Linux way and now prefer it.
Try this extension "Containers"
I really love the voice to speech function in Chrome, so much so that I can't ditch it until Firefox or someone else comes up with something that works as well or better. The accuracy of the voice recognition is incredible.Containers is why I can't use any Chrominum browser anymore.
