Linux Mint unveils 'Mintbox Mini Pro' -- a diminutive desktop powered by AMD

Even worse, if you ever need support, the manufacturer might turn you away when it finds out you loaded Ubuntu, Fedora, or something else.

A smart alternative is to buy a computer from a company that cares about Linux, such as System76.

How to Automatically Change Ubuntu or Mint Desktop Wallpaper to Bing’s Photo of the Day   

While it's arguably true that your choice of computer operating system (Windows, Linux, or Mac OS) says a lot about you, there's something else computer-related that reflects your personality: your desktop wallpaper. For example, having a photo of your parents, wife, or baby on your desktop conveys that family comes first for you, while that of a beautiful landscape reveals your love of nature.

How to Perform a Clean Install of macOS Sierra   

Clean or Upgrade Install of macOS Sierra?

The upgrade install is by far the easiest method of upgrading your Mac to macOS Sierra. The upgrade install preserves all of your current user data, documents, and apps, while upgrading the existing operating system on your Mac's startup drive to macOS Sierra. The advantage is that once the upgrade is completed, your Mac is ready to go, with all your personal data intact and ready to be used.

The clean install option, on the other hand, replaces the contents of the target drive, wiping away any existing data on the drive and replacing it with a pristine copy of macOS Sierra.
