Normally I'd install some flavour of Ubuntu on my computer but the SSD is so fast I haven't been aggravated enough by Windows to get rid of it. Yet. I've been close at times. I have had some issues such as power management continuously disconnecting the USB ports, as though saving power takes priority over having a mouse and an internet connection :wall: . After going through the power management options and turning them all to 'maximum performance' this is issue is now solved for me unless I'm on battery power and the charge level hits 40% - then my mouse and internet will disconnect then reconnect. I also had some issues with the friggin quad 4 display, or whatever it's called, making Chrome show webpages at 1/4 of their intended size. But I fixed that (can't remember how). And Windows seemed to be battling Chrome for a while there but things have been better recently.

Occasionally I feel my computer getting hot, even though I'm only browsing the web with a couple of tabs open, and when I check the task manager the perpetrator is some anti-malware program. Then I start getting itchy fingers for Ubuntu again.

Having issues with my internet disconnecting at times. Not sure if it's rubbish Chinese IPS's or the VPN. Or Win10? Suggestions?

What PC do you have?

EDIT: the bastard crashed this afternoon. Had to get the techie to fix it. Only had it a week.
