For a long time I've had an internet problem, several internet problems. Not sure which is the cause, the ISP, or Windows fucking number 10. Called tech support for the ISP a number of times last year to no avail. Once the phone repairman found a burnt spot in the wires, cut a short piece out and spliced it back together. Didn't make any difference. Lately I've done a lot of googling and it seems that Windows fucking 10 has a lot of internet connectivity problems. Tried some of the fixes and still have the problem. It's really frustrating when you click on a link and the internet goes away, or you go to leave a comment on facebook or Twitter and no internet.

Anywho, I decided I'd try Linux OS. I've been curious about it for more than 10 years. I googled how to install Linux. Found how to download Linux to a flash drive and try Linux from the flash drive before installing it. I did that and did a couple of test drives. Linux didn't seem to have the problems I had with Windows fucking 10 as far as connectivity went. Here is where I found the download.

Now I have it installed along side Windows fucking 10. Am writing this post using Linux, so we'll see how it goes.

Now I have to bookmark the porn sites all over again!


  1. Your post was fine. I have had no problem with windows 10 and I am on cable. I wonder how satellite internet works for efficiency and cost.

    1. Northern Michigan University has an Educational Access Network for the Upper Peninsula, but their coverage is not complete. It is wireless using cellphone towers and their plans look good, good speed, unlimited data, discounted price for veterans, etc, but where I live is a dead area. I have looked into wireless plans for home phone and internet, but we use too much data.

      The problem with the DSL is the system is old and probably outdated, it was good when they first ran the fiber optic lines to our area, but now needs updating, like the wires from the end of the fiber to the house.
