Five Flavours of Linux


Post by Pierre » Sat Jul 20, 2019 9:39 am

so, the author bought an New Laptop, and it came with Win-10:
https://www.zdnet.com/article/installin ... 14-laptop/
I let the Windows setup procedure run on first boot, until I got to the point where it became clear to me that it is now impossible to install Windows without a Microsoft account .. Absolutely impossible .. Windows 10 has always asked for a Microsoft account during setup, but there was a tiny (nearly invisible) option to use only a local account, which I always did .. Well, now that option is gone, and if you dig around long enough you can eventually find an explanation that says if you don't want to use a Microsoft account, well, you have to anyway, but after the installation is complete you can go back into the configuration and change it to use a local account.
that's news to me. .. the last time, that I'd looked, you could still utilize an Local Account,
- at least it was last month, when I'd been messing around, installing win-10 v1903

anyway, after the Author had wiped that win-10 - - he then proceeded to install Five Flavours of Linux:
- - which is what the article is really about.
but, no MX-Linux - unfortunately.
Please edit your original post title to include [SOLVED] - when your problem is solved!
and DO LOOK at those Unanswered Topics - - you may be able to answer some!.
