I have a good idea which distro I'd like to use. I like that Mint is easy to use. I don't have to install any codecs, and it comes with many of the programs I would use. I'm just not sure which environment I should use. The thing that bothers me about Linux is the inability to create batch files to open more than one program and pixel shaders or Kawaii Codec Pack. I like Kawaii Codec Pack because it allows me to achieve optimal video settings easily because it has preconfigured profiles. I could never be bothered tampering with settings in a video player to figure out how to get the best viewing experience for myself. I know VLC media player has a lot of filters. I would like to use the sharpen filter in particular, but I never could get those filters to work. I tried them today, and I still can't get them to work. Unless they are working, but the effect is miniscule. Does Linux have a feature that is similar to Windows' batch files?
I also plan on getting an ultrabook for my next computer. I feel like it would be quite challenging to find a computer that meets ultrabook standards, has been manufactured to be compatible with Linux, ships with Linux, and has good support. Interestingly, I did find this:
Perhaps it will become easier to find such computers, and maybe this is something I could look at.
I forgot Windows 8 has Windows 7's built-in system-imaging feature. How does Windows create images of the system? Does it create the image in one file, or is the backup composed of many different files? Can the images be mounted to retrieve specific files from?
Internet Explorer is being quirky. Whenver I run Internet Explorer, it starts background process; and those background process aren't closed when I exit the program. Consequently, Internet Explorer never opens the tabs from my last session because it's still running. I always have the end the processes in the task manager.
