  2. I often edit a python file on my PC, that I run on my Raspberry Pi? I use sneaker net and a thumb drive to transfer it from one to the other. No issues so far. It's a py file so I guess its not really a Linux file?

  3. Windows-Ubuntu Dual Boot, Cannot write or edit files in Ubuntu.

    Hi Hemal,

    First of all, Linux and Windows are completely different operating systems. We have an information site about our warning not to combine these two operating systems.

    You can read for more information here - Do not change Linux files using Windows apps and tools:

    If you want to install or have multiple operating systems on your computer, you will need to separate them into drive partitions. This means
    Windows doesn’t coincide with other operating systems files to work with its file system.

    All Linux files are read-only in Windows. There is no script that allows you to edit or write their files while they are saved on the hard disk of where Windows was installed.

    Yawn. I use various distros of linux when and where it makes sense. Care to compare notes in a different thread?

    Lets let CW vent in his own way.

    Oh and actually you are wrong about Linux being the most used OS, Android is.
