  1. GREAT GREAT TUTORIAL! I just wanted to add, from experience, to make sure that you check and confirm that you are running a 64-bit version of Chrome before you download and attempt to use a 64-bit version of LibreOffice. Also, I downloaded the 64-bit version of Microsoft compatible LibreOffice without paying attention and as a result the installation crashed and burned. I tried to back out of running the Linux environment and could not. Had to do a Powerwash and start over. Made sure the next time that I download LibreOffice 64-bit for Linux which is 7.2.2. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!

  2. Thanks for the guide. I have a very limited knowledge of linux but I thought that after 'sudo apt update', which checks for updates we should run 'sudo apt upgrade', is my understanding correct?
