You do have a choice and you are making it.

Lets start with this. On 6-25 you posted a email about multiples of 
items. How about starting with asking 1 question, getting that solved 
and then asking another.

And there are more than one place to ask questions - about how about 

I dont see anything in your emails about your system. How old is this 
computer? What hardware do you have?

Is Ubuntu for every machine? No. Some machines take work - others, not 
so much.

As for choice: Windows is mandated to a degree and you see no other 
option but that. This isnt a use this instead of that OS. This is, you 
have alternatives but you will have to learn about your alternatives 
before you can use them.
