Is it because of looks you got Linux?

Look and feel is also part of the appeal so it is not wrong to say the OS looks plain. That is why distros like Deepin, Elementary and Zorin exist. The beauty of Linux is that you have several options to choose from (Freedom of choice). That is why I recommend people trying out as many distros as they can before they settle for one.

my ram matters to me too boss, i downloaded the Xfce interface maybe that is why i dont like it, because it is not just giving me the vibe i want.
i have live boot deepin and pop! and i am loving both but i will go for pop! because deepin looks like its a little bit heavy. currently running linux lite i am loving it except for the app store that is a let down for me, the app store is new to me

Try KDE it has a good interface and all the utilities you need plus you can download additional decorations to change the style of the window and borders.

Don't know what is wrong with my system, tried installing Debian and lubuntu, but the installer kept failing till the lubuntu managed to pull through, tongue but I would have preferred Debian but I'm scared to format the drive to install since it was a hassle getting the lubuntu installed.
Note, this isn't my first install. I've used Ubuntu, Kali and elementary on my other hdd only that they were legacy install not uefi
Re: Ubuntu Linux by Deicide: 1:10am On Feb 03, 2021
You can try it in Virtual Box

Is the printer on your network or USB connection to your Linux laptop?
Most Linux distros come with printer drivers and should discover your printer easily.

The Printer is on USB Connection to my Linus Laptop.
Re: Ubuntu Linux by Gargoylesmiles(m): 8:18pm On Feb 20, 2021
What distro are you running on your PC? From my experience the popular distros like Ubuntu and its derivatives will discover that printer automatically.

Thanks . I am not a computer guru. I don't even know what is called distro. It is Linus ubuntu software that I installed in the computer.

No it does not by default but there are several ways to run *.exe files in Linux distros.
For starters you can install Wine (winehq dot org) on Ubuntu to run Windows application on it.
