Quirks?  Even when I managed to get Ubuntu to install (or so it said) when I rebooted it could not find any operating system.  So I have gone back to Windows 8.1 and reserved my copy of Windows 10.  I will try again after that comes out.  I think I will go with installing on a flash drive with persistence too but have not had much work there.

Do Your Prefer Modern Or Traditional Linux Desktop Environments?
Somebody I have been conversing with for a while now asked me a very interesting question the other day and rather than answer it directly I thought it would be good to gauge the opinions of the Everyday Linux User readers. Recently I have written a few art...

I like the stability of Debian but right now am dealing with getting Linux on a machine with Windows 8.1 and secure boot.
