There's been a nifty thing out for a while, called dual boot. wink Flash works just fine, and has for a rather long time, too. I can hardly remember back when it was an issue, it was that distant. The last time I had to really get my hands dirty in Linux was around Ubuntu 6.06, almost twelve years ago, and that wasn't even so bad. The upshot was I learned more than enough then to keep me going through any potential emergency I'd come across now.

Until it's no longer supported and your running a unpatched vulnerable Pc. That makes you happy?

These sound like basic tasks that just about any web browser should be able to accomplish, regardless of underlying operating system. Does Win 10 not allow you to access your email or browse internet forums, etc?

How hard is it to install Linux and get rid of Windows 10 on a desktop? I've tried to wipe a Samsung Tab and install Lollipop following youtube directions and haven't been able to complete the process. Not upset about it because I couldn't use it anyway with all the bloatware on it.

Before you venture to a completely different OS, which you are going to have to learn, maybe try this first?

Or try linux with windows look...
