Just installed Windows 10 on a new hard drive.   With the built in W10 antivirus, etc, is there any need to also load Adware and other software?

(Also I will say this was a very easy drive replacement compared to 20 years ago!  Almost painless except the actual drive replacement in the laptop with so many little screws and cables!)

I am running Win10 and have an adblocker. Other than that no problems.

So now you've got Win 10. Next, install Lubuntu 18.04 LTS alongside it and you will never want use the Win 10 again.

+1. This one.  Or Regular Ubuntu. Or Debian.

I am currently using SolydK, a Debian based Linux distro with KDE.  There is also SolydX that has Xfce.

Who knew you would find Linux discussion on a lantern forum? Oh, and Ubuntu  Mate is the best.

I have used several distros over time, Red hat 1.0, Debian stable and unstable, Kanotix, Knoppix, Aptosid etc... currently I am using mint KDE on my laptop after my previous laptop suffered an untimely death, got a nice one with a dead hard drive and I was not going to allow it to go to waste... I tried Ubuntu sometime in the early 2000's, but did not like the desktop back then.

If you need a Sun Flame Generator Model 100-107 ( for Sunflame lanterns models 105, 106, 107 and 110) give me a PM, I have close to 80 of those, 15 bucks each.

@Stan_D That's funny. I like that. Used to be a lot of truth to that.
  For those that aren't aware though, elementary school kids are using Linux. It runs on a little $35 computer called a Raspberry PI. Linux has been the better desktop option for most situations for 10 to 15 years now.  It works like Unix so it was always more capable than windows, but now more lower skill level usable as well.  No more compiling your OS from source code like it was 25 years ago, hasn't been that way for a long time either.

I don't know about 25 years ago, but when Vista (bleh) was out, and 7 was coming, I tried Ubuntu Studio, a version of Linux that was supposed to be strong with video. My camcorder used Firewire to upload, but the Ubuntu would NEVER recognize the Firewire port, and I had a difficult time getting it to recognize a printer.

I started out with Apple III and then Mac, but got in to Windows just before 95 came out. I've used all versions except 2000.  Having experience with all of these, I'll stick with Windows.

@Stan_D . Not to drag this out, but I guess I am. I have been using Ubuntu and Ubuntu Mate since the 8.04 days. I think we are up to 18.10, or 19.04 now. I built two desktops just around Linux and never had used windows on them. My wife, who is not a computer person, uses Mate everyday. I installed it on her work computer and she has it on her home one also. The only reason that I allow a windows laptop in the house is because Linux has not figured out how to make a flatbed scanner take deep scans. So I use Windows (shutter) to make 2400 dpi tiff files for archive purposes. Cheers, and now back to the lanterns.

+1 on the raspberry pi - there is a newer version that came out making it suitable as a light desktop (usb 3, 3x fast processor, and options for 1, 2, or 4 GB of ram among other things). Run kodi on it and you have a multimedia setup

I have an old Toshiba laptop that I’m not using. I’ve been wanting to try Linux for years but have been to chicken. I think I’ll experiment with this one because it doesn’t matter if I screw it up. Right now it’s running Vista. Probably older then the 10 yrs they recommend but what the hey. Any recommendations on which one is best to start out with?

There is a learning curve but if you want to play one way to go is to use a live cd of lubuntu (ubuntu light version for older computers) because it uses less
My 2cents is...
resources than the regular ubuntu. You don't need to install ubuntu using a live cd...so test your hardware by booting from it. You will lose everything on
you hard drive if you do decide to install though. Booting from a live cd is a good start since you can check that all your hardware is working under linux. For example, you want to test that your wireless adapter is working ( can you access the internet through your home router?) because it is a pain to use an ethernet cable. Just know that you will probably have old wireless hardware that isn't as fast as what is used now - wireless N and AC are more recent but you may have something else). If I were you I would really consider getting a raspberry pi version 4...because it runs Raspian on an sdcard and there is no moving parts. It is a fairly easy intro into Linux (Raspian is based on Ubuntu) and there is a good group of guys supporting it when you need to ask questions on their forum. Raspberry Pi's are cheap! The version 4 has fast wireless (AC), usb 3 and options for 1, 2 or 4gb ram. If you have a tv use that as a monitor for your raspberry pi...add a wireless keyboard and mouse and you are all set. You will need to install Raspian on the sdcard using another computer though.
You may want to check if your hardware is 64 or 32 bit because you need to know that before downloading lubuntu - 64 bit doesn't install on 32 bit but the reverse works

 If I recall it’s 64 bit. And I just want to test it. There is nothing on it to lose and I don’t care if it gets screwed up. I was just going to get rid of it anyway. If it works and I like it I just might put it on my new laptop.

Lots of grips here about Windows and Windows 10 too. I have done Ubuntu as well as Mint versions of Linux from time to time to test if it will suit my needs, each time I have encountered some problems with software I want to use, even though sometimes it is available in Linux versions. Some of it to install you have to compile it yourself. Two working computers for myself here, I wind up going back to Windows by loading the windows image I saved just before installing Linux. Linux is considerably faster at executing programs,  after a short learning curve it is pretty easy to use, would love it if it did those few things/programs I use frequently.

Warren, use either the builtin Windows Defender or outside source anti virus software, you can't use both, Nortion and all those turn off builtin Windows Defender when installed. I have found no problems with the builtin anti-virus here, I run Spybot manually once in a while to check for maleware.
