Nyx Operating System
The machine came with MS/Windows Vista Business pre-installed and this was first set up on booting the machine. Ubuntu 13.10 was initially upgraded to from 13.04 but there were stability issues with the kernel version and nouvea video driver. A clean install of Ubuntu 13.10 was undertaken . Video driver issues continue with Unity and so Gnome Shell is used and is stable. Upgrade to 14.04 went smoothly .
