After decades of running Windows, I have finally switched to Linux — and it’s amazing! I was able to make the switch painlessly thanks to Windowsfx, the Linux distribution Microsoft developed exclusively for Windows users. In this article, I’ll show you why you should be excited about Windowsfx too!
The first question
If you’re a Windows user, you’ve probably always wished you could use Linux. But, up until now, there hasn’t been a distribution that was just right for Windows users. Enter Windowsfx. This new distribution has everything you need to make the switch from Windows to Linux – and it’s finally available to download.
It comes with your favorite Windows programs pre-installed: like Microsoft Office, Chrome, Firefox, and even some games! You can also play Xbox One games on your computer if you connect an Xbox One controller to your PC or laptop. And Windowsfx lets you install any program in the Ubuntu repositories. Plus, unlike other distributions, it doesn’t come with any junkware or bloatware you don’t want. Plus, because it’s based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Long Term Support), updates are constantly being released and rolled out to ensure the stability of your system.
If you’re a Windows user who’s been wanting to try out Linux, then you’re in luck – Windowsfx is the perfect distribution for you. Here’s a quick guide on how to install it
1) Download the ISO image
2) Burn that ISO image onto a USB drive or DVD-ROM
3) Boot from that drive or DVD-ROM
4) Wait for installation to complete and restart your computer once it has finished installing
5) It’ll take about 15 minutes to install . After it’s done, you’ll be presented with an installer that walks you through setting up Windowsfx (the installer will also help you migrate your files and settings over). You should probably take this opportunity to change your password now if you haven’t already. Congratulations, if everything went well, now all of your personal files are being transferred over as we speak!
Comparing Linux distributions with WINE (Wine Is Not an Emulator)
Linux distributions are known for being more stable and secure than Windows, but they can also be more difficult to use. WINE is a program that allows you to run Windows programs on Linux, and it’s been getting better and better over the years. There are three main ways in which WINE and Linux differ:
1) Generally speaking, installing programs with a package manager on Linux is much easier than using Microsoft Installer or .exe files;
2) Most Linux distros include drivers for hardware by default whereas Windows requires drivers to be downloaded separately;
3) Configuration options are very different between the two operating systems–things like networking settings can’t be changed without taking extra steps in Linux whereas these changes happen automatically in Windows.
If this sounds like something you’re interested in trying out, there’s never been a better time to switch!
Comparing Linux distributions with VirtualBox (VirtualBox Is Not an Emulator)
Linux distributions are widely known for being far more stable than Windows, which is why many people turn to them when they’re looking for an operating system that will be reliable and won’t crash. VirtualBox is a great way to try out different Linux distributions without having to install them on your computer. Plus, it’s free and easy to use.
I’ve been using VirtualBox to test out various Linux distributions, and I have to say that I’m impressed. Not only is it easy to set up, but it’s also fast and responsive. So far, I’ve tried Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora, Debian, and openSUSE, and all of them have worked well in VirtualBox.
Real benefits of using Windowsfx instead of Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora, Arch, etc.
Windowsfx is a brand new Linux distribution that has been designed specifically for Windows users. It offers all of the benefits of using a Linux-based operating system, without any of the usual headaches that come with trying to set up and use one. What really sets Windowsfx apart from other distributions are its super easy installation process and its very simple user interface. Once you’re done installing Windowsfx, you’ll find that everything just works right out of the box – there’s no need to spend hours trying to figure out how to get your internet working or install some software like Open Office.
In fact, everything in Windowsfx is pre-installed so there’s nothing else you need on top of what comes with it already. There are no complicated instructions or confusing settings menus; simply press enter at each prompt and let Windowsfx do all the work for you!
This long-awaited Linux distribution is based on Debian and offers a number of features that will be familiar to Windows users, including:
-A user-friendly graphical interface
-The ability to run Windows programs via Wine
-An easy-to-use package manager
Plus, Windowsfx comes with a number of unique features that make it ideal for anyone looking to switch from Windows to Linux, including:
-A complete set of tools for developers
-A wide range of pre-installed applications
-Great performance out of the box ; don’t need to spend hours tweaking settings
-Doesn’t suffer from fragmentation like other distributions do, so you’ll always get the latest updates (and you can keep them!)
-You won’t get stuck with all those outdated apps when your OS upgrades; everything stays up to date automatically!
