Are you fed up with Windows? Or maybe you just can't afford to pay for it? Whatever the case may be, it doesn't matter. That's because there are plenty of good opensource operating systems are available today. But today, I'm going to talk about one of them, and that's Ubuntu. Ubuntu is one of the most recognizable Linux distributions in the world. It has a huge active community thanks to its ease of use and its trouble-free operation. Unlike other Linux distributions, it supports a lot of hardware out of the box. Now, let's see how easy it is to install Ubuntu! You will need a bootable USB for this and we recommend Etcher to create the bootable drive, and indeed, it makes the entire process user friendly. If you don't have the software yet, you can download Etcher from its official website.
Please follow the instructions below.
Download Ubuntu Desktop ISO
First of all, you'll need to download the Ubuntu ISO file and burn it to a USB flash drive. To do this, go to the official Ubuntu website and download the latest ISO image. Ubuntu is free and open-source, although you are asked for a donation. If you don't want to donate, you can choose to decline them all.
Preparing The Installation Media
Now it's time to prepare the bootable USB using Etcher. You also can use Rufus as an alternative. In any way, the downloaded ISO file should be burned to a USB flash drive. Plug the USB flash drive, launch the Etcher software, and locate the Ubuntu ISO file you wish to make bootable. After that simply click on the "Start" button to initiate the process.
Everything on the USB drive will be erased when you click on the "Start" button. Therefore, make sure to backup your data on the USB drive. Depending on your computer speed and the size of the ISO file, the entire process should take between 10 minutes to 20 minutes.
Once it is completed, you need to boot your computer from this USB flash drive. Unfortunately, we can't give you specific instructions to follow here because each motherboard is different. We advise you to read the user's manual of the motherboard for more details. You can even look online.
