It's loading atm,via a 'stand alone' HDD that I rescued form an old HP tower system,to use as a storage modem for 'in progress' equations etc,right here,right beside this Dell [which,one has to say,really has impressed me with it's speed,fluidity,and responsiveness-but that's by-the-by]....so,I'll let you know how it goes.

Much of that went right over my head except that you've managed to install Linux on an iPad.
Some techy things I'm pretty clued up on; others I have no idea. For instance I've barely ever used a Microsoft product thus have no clue about Windows or Microsoft's own products (do they still make anything apart from the surface?)
I like Apple products for their simplicity of use and aesthetics. Most of them come with a built in tips app but I find them intuitive. Was my phone worth £1000? Perhaps not, but it is the best phone I've ever owned. Same goes for the iPad - iOs 11 really opened up its possibilities but I tend to stay away from the ultra techy side of things and just enjoy the device.
My MacBook may be a glorified Chromebook for all I use it for: I should really investigate more of what it can do, but I find it fine as is even with just the one USB-C port. I was surprised genuinely the other day when I discovered that it had a 3.5mm headphone jack. I, like many others have moved away to BT head and earphones.
