Reddit: Just got Linux, on accident. Now I'm confused

Friday 30th of January 2015 03:48:47 AM

Hello. In an attempt to change the song titles on my computer so the tracks didn't have numbers in front, I came across a post stating to use Ubuntu. I went for it. I had no clue Ubuntu was an OS, none the less, Linux.

As a windows user my entire life, what the heck do I do now? I don't own a hard copy of windows to get it back. Is it worth my time to try and learn Linux/Ubuntu? Please tell me why. Thanks!

Pro tip: Find tons of open-source Android software with F-Droid

If you're looking for truly open-source software for the Android platform, you don't have to do a ton of searching or check through licenses from within the Google Play Store. All you have to do is download a simple tool called F-Droid. With this tool, you can download and install apps (from quite a large listing) as easily as you can from the Google Play Store. You won't, however, find F-Droid in the Google Play Store. Instead, you have to download the .apk file and install it manually. Once it's installed, the rest is just a matter of searching for an app and tapping to install. Read more
