    It just keeps getting worse. One of the reasons I chose a Chromebook laptop as an ancillary machine is due to how terrible Windows is.

    And yet somehow still the inferior computer company will still reign supreme over all competition.

    No big deal. Windows updated overnight on it's own. Problem solved. There is no system that can't be hacked. Just those that are either more or less difficult to hack. And of course, the most popular system will always be the one which will receive the most attention from hackers.

    Not to mention, most Chromebooks can be made to run Linux.

    I did a big update the other day. Then, after I read your post I did an update, and there was another smaller one and a malicious software removal tool update, too.

    I use ubuntu because I'm a linux noob. But it works for me.

    Exactly. It's not difficult to keep your machine safe by using the supplied protection software (Windows Defender, in this case), not messing with system settings too much and keeping things updated.

    Windows 10 gives me headaches. It takes me 60GB of downloads just to start programming on it.

    Chromebooks do run a flavour of linux by default. Just not a good one

    Actually, did you know you can switch to full Linux on one? Google it.

    Chromeos is a full Linux system.

    However using chroot or a fresh install you can change distributions, yes.
