How to prepare

  1. Backup your valuable data, if you haven't already. See our page on backups for help. Even if you don't plan on installing Linux, everybody should have backups!
  2. Skim over our list of distributions—we typically install Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, or openSUSE.
  3. If you have a laptop, don't forget to bring your power adapter. If you have a desktop, only the tower will be necessary.
