    I just picked up a computer that is running Ubuntu an am finding Ubuntu quite difficult. The computer originally ran Windows Vista Home premium. My question is, is there a way for me to make a CD or flash drive of Vista to install on the computer and then upgrade to windows 7 or even higher. Just not sure if I want to be on Ubuntu for the long term. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    You can't upgrade from Vista to 7 for free and it's not worth installing Vista to use it because support runs out soon.

    Your choices are run Ubuntu or another Linux OS like Mint for free, pay to upgrade to 7 or 10, or go down the dark path of a dodgy Windows copy.

    I must disagree with ...Ubuntu quite difficult... - anyway, there is no need to make any USB with Vista and/or perform any upgrades. Just download Win10 ISO (free of charge) from microsoft web site, select edition - (for an instance) single language, select language - (fai) english, choose 32 or 64 bit version, when download is ended, burn ISO image to USB or DVD, install it... After that you may install an another OS, one of Hal9000 suggested, as dual boot.
