Installed ubuntu using the windows installer just for the penguin tf2 thingy. Which was pain in the ass to install Steam on it. Couldn't be installed from the software center deleo and steam's deb file so I had to bing for terminal commands to be able to install it. After that while steam was downloading tf2 I used the os for a bit, and it was pure hell. A LOT slower than my Windows 7 setup that is installed on the same machine to the point that it was pretty much unusable. Took a while for applications to launch and when they did, the usability and performance of them wasn't something to brag about.
I just gave up on it, waited for steam to finish downloading, launched the game to receive the penguin and immediately after booted back to Windows and uninstalled ubuntu and forgot about it. Took a few screenshots that I saved on my second hd of many errors that I received during the hell that ubuntu gave me... but now when I try to open the pngs on Windows it can't read the files or even delete them, so still got the bad taste of ubuntu left on my machine.
Wasn't worth the trouble for the penguin. But hey, at least the ubuntu guys gained another registered user (used my spam e-mail) to their software center thingy and vavle a couple more downloads of steam for linux.
Installing Linux in that rushed way is... just bad, I'm mainly a windows user but I tell you, Installing linux requires a bit more than a few commands on the bash terminal, you probably forgot to set up your GPU properly.
