In this video, I go over switching from Windows to Linux. I give you a background about the switch and what to expect. Afterwards, we do a brief first Linux install using Pop OS.

How to install to dual boot windows???
Goddamn... I'm trying to install linux lite on my little note book. It's very underpowered and it haved windows 10! It's horrible.But what ever I do it doesn't allow me to install Linux. I'm using American Megatrends.Can please someone help me?
If you want a windowish clone install Mint. It doesn't much matter which one they all look pretty much the same but I would stay away from Mint LMDE if your new to linux.
Will I still be able to access my windows files when I make the switch or will I loose everything?
Linux is far more secure. Agreed. But then you're using Office ONLINE? That's the opposite of security. 🙄🤔
Is pop a rolling install & can I use LXDE
at first I wasn't too sure about gnome 3... but once you get the hang of it, it's absolutely amazing and fluent environment.. to bad I've got to use win10 at work :D
After I hit “try or install Pop OS” I get stuck on a black screen
I wanted to test POP!_OS so I downloaded it and tried to install it to a Virtual Machine. This didn't succeed because the installer didn't recognize the virtual HD. Then I tried it on bare-metal on a laptop. All fine and peachy until it told me to create a password... no combination of upper/lowercase/punctuation mark I tried got accepted. Either that or the acceptance button/enter key was not realised by the OS. End of that story. Now I need to install something else to that machine if I want to use it for something. Maybe I put the Linux Mint Mate back, that worked at least (it's not actually a new laptop).
Can you share the steps for actually removing windows and installing pop os?
Linux install starts at 4:58
Chris, your the man.I salute you!
Hello, I hope you can help me, I need a dual boot, I use mint, but since I install side win 10, i can not edith my D partition unit, all I can do is read files but I can not write the files,, can you help me?
You are on virtualbox
Thank you !! I wanted to make the switch for years now and all the distros I tried wasn't just right either a driver or something else.... Until I found pop os from this video it's perfect runs straight out of the box and your other vid with the customised desktop worked perfect...time to make the switch for good !
