    I usually drink hard ciders, but my absolute favourite drink is Amarula. It's a South African cream liqueur and I can happily finish a bottle.

    Testing on a spare laptop is how I switched too. Try a few distros though before you settle on one to install on your main pc. Something else to check out is that most distros have versions with a different desktop environment. So if you like how Ubuntu works but don't like the appearance of the desktop and menus, try xubuntu or kubuntu.
