2.2.2. 2 Prone to viruses, spyware, and adware, which reduces performance speed.

3. Ubuntu

3.1. Pros:

3.1.1. 1 Pros: Free, has tons of software available, mostly also free.

3.1.2. 2 Can easily install as a dual boot or even inside Windows using the Wubi installer

3.2. Cons:

3.2.1. 1 There’s no “Works with Linux” logo that buyers can look for when buying new hardware

3.2.2. 2 New and latest hardware normally do not support Ubuntu right away.

3.2.3. 3 Can’t install most software because most software are built for Windows and not Ubuntu, this mean you will have to use emulators to install Windows software to make it work
