During the last few days I have spent a lot of time freeing space on my Windows 10 machine as to create space for dual-booting Ubuntu. Turns out the work was in vain and I had to wipe the hard-drive and re-install Windows before being able to shrink the drive and install Ubuntu after all.
So far things went smoothly but there is now a bunch of updates to be done and of course getting rid of all the pre-installed crap. I really don’t get the need for the latter in the first place.
Anyway, things seem fine at the moment and I guess if things work out fine with the dualboot I will post the next update from there.
