Microsoft has released another update to their flagship product Windows 10 and it is being called Creators Update. But as with all the updates, this update also demands much more from your PC than the previous version not to mention all the new ways of dialing-back-home and display of advertisements in various parts of Windows 10. Perhaps this is the right time to switch over to the Linux world. Here we are listing five Linux distros that can easily replace Windows 10 in your PC.
1. Elementary OS: This is based on the popular Ubuntu Linux and is designed for the beginner Linux users. It has a unique user interface that give the appearance of Mac OS but also borrows some elements from Windows.

The beauty of all of these Linux distributions is that you can install them along with Windows either on the same hard disk drive or another hard disk drive. If you do not want to mess up the partitions in your Windows installation, our recommendation is to use a secondary hard disk drive for installing Linux.
