On this occasion I will comment on my experience in the total migration to a linux system specifically the lubuntu distribution, with this tutorial it is only intended to present simply another different option, allowing us to continue our tests with greater efficiency in open source and IoT applications.

After much meditating on the advantages and disadvantages of changing the operating system I decided to use lubuntu as the main operating system, during many of the previous tutorials I used the nostalgic Windows XP, and to require running other software or applications not available in XP used Virtualbox for Run Lubuntu, Ubuntu, Windows 7 or Windows 10, for a long time this was my mode of operation to consider that Windows XP already generated many complications regarding software compatibility and updates in general.

I needed an operating system to secure programming.

Step 1: Migration to Complete to Lubuntu Part 1/2

In this case we will migrate from an OS Windows in this case, to linux SO Lubuntu 16.04.3 LTS to 32 bits.
I will indicate the steps for the migration process the advantages of this operating system.

  1. Download and Install UUI "Universal USB Installer" in Windows
  2. Download Image iso de lubuntu 16.04.3 LTS to 32-bits
  3. Download and create CD with plop Manager (Optional)
  4. Create LIve-USB of lubuntu in USB Pendrive booteable

Step 2: Lubuntu

Lubuntu is the combination of LXDE and Ubuntu, Lubuntu's slogan is "light, fast, easier", I recommend this operating system for any computer especially old computers, laptops, netbooks, but not for all of them. Some computers have very little power or memory.

A general rule is that the computer should not be older than 10 years.

Step 3: 1 Download and Install UUI "Universal USB Installer" in Windows

The Universal USB Installer is a boot loader for linux allows to select the distribution linux and adding of the iso of certain distribution to create in a USB Pendrive a pocket operating system.

Step 4: ​2 Download Image Iso De Lubuntu 16.04.3 LTS to 32-bits

Depending on the architecture and characteristics of our pc we download the required image, in my case version 16.04.3 LTS to 32 bits.

Downloads : lubuntu.me/downloads

Step 5: 3 Download and Create CD With Plop BooT Manager (Optional)

Note: This step is optional depending on the features of the PC.

Normally to boot lubuntu from the USB pendrive, it is simply required to configure the boot order that is first made from USB devices and plop manager is not required.

In my case the bios of my Compaq computer, does not allow the option of USB boot, in some cases is solved updating the BIOS, but depends mainly on the characteristics of the PC.

Plop Manager allows boot from USB allowing to run our pendrive with lubuntu, only you must download plop manager burn in a CD and configure in the Boot BIOS from CD-ROM.

Step 6: 4 Create Live-USB in UUI of Lubuntu in USB Pendrive

USB Memory Stick 4GB Formatted

Run UUI:

  1. Select linux distribution "lubuntu".
  2. Select image iso lubuntu 16.04.3 32-bit LTS.
  3. Select USB Pendrive, it must be formatted
  4. Create live-USB and OS ready

Step 7: Run Plop Boot Manager And/or Boot USB Pendrive

Reboot PC.

Step 8: Migration to Complete to Lubuntu Part 2/2

-The following video will indicate the test execution and installation of lubuntu.

Step 9: ​Pocket Operating System

In case of not performing or require a complete and/or permanent installation of lubuntu, when creating the live-usb in USB usb "usb memory" 4gb, will have an operating system which allows to test, boot and use temporarily without any problem.

File Retention: In UUI the space in the pendrive "4GB" is determined for retention of files.

Step 10: Conclusions


Personally a few years ago I listened to linux and thought it was something very complex, complicated or difficult to manage, after trying lubuntu personally consider that it has many advantages that should know.

Currently linux is not the complex system that was considered in the case of beginners, a sample is raspbian for raspberry pi a which is a variant of debian share similarity, if you have used a raspberry pi, lubuntuwill be perfect to create applications with reliability and robustes of a PC.

You could have a pocket operating system.

With a linux operating system, they will consolidate their knowledge in programming, and will become more recursive people regarding the administration of their PC.

Step 11: Advantage and More Info


It is free, in this case the distribution is opensource, being free no payments, licenses or patents, technically can be installed where and how many times you want.

Efficiency and Speed, I personally have not done detailed tests with other operating systems but, it is denoted that with few resources is fast, agility and fluency is unique.

Secure: it is one of the operating systems more secure and stable, low vulnerability rate referring to antivirus and attacks, does not need antivirus

Easy installation of software, although it has applications for software installation, I prefer to install from the command line terminal, there are only certain rules like trying to install software only with the command apt-get, do not install unknown or strange little used repositories.

Support: of course there is a large community of developers and if you have an error or problem it is very possible that someone has already had it.
