My first week with Ubuntu

Image
I will be honest here, i never thought i will ever use Ubuntu (or any distro of linux) ever again after my three terrible experiences in past. But last week i thought of giving ubuntu 18 LTS another shot on my old laptop which used to have windows 10 Home.
This time, I erased entire hard drive and installed Ubuntu with all default settings. Installation took 5 minutes and getting my Wi-Fi card work took another 30 minutes.
After it was all set, I tried using this laptop more for regular use and I loved it. Now, I use it as my primary computer.
What i liked so far:
Speed and no clutterNo worry of privacy settingsAlternatives of all required apps are available.App Store is very useful.I have alternatives of Premier Pro, Photoshop available for free (legally)What i didn't like so far:
Learning the terminal.
