Ubuntu Studio 

Let me get started in saying this may not work on a old computer from 1999. But it will defiantly work on anything that can run at least windows 7.  If you're unsure what Ubuntu is, well simply put it's a Operating system like "MacOS" or "Windows". The big difference is its free and open source!Some genius decided to make a version of Ubuntu with the artist in mind! So I'd like to introduce you to Ubuntu Studio!

WHAT YOU NEED TO INSTALL UBUNTU STUDIO


1. USB 4gb or more
2. Software to burn a ISO (for this tutorial we will use Rufus)


Once you have everything ready is really simple. What you will do is plug in the USB, open the software you picked from the list provided. For this tutorial we will be using Rufus.




Once you have the ISO burned onto your USB you will simply plug the ISO into your computer and it should boot from USB and give you the option to install Ubuntu Studio. If your computer boots normal you may need to access the boot menu.

If you need to change your boot menu follow this tutorial below, most the time it's either F2, F11, or F12 to access the boot menu.
