This enough...after a year struggling with Windows10 fast boot, secure boot, registered keys, UEFI files and endless updating, I cleaned the whole hard drive. Back to Linux again: installed Mint 17.3. All the data journalism stuff: Excel(office online) or Calc(Open Office, Outwit-Hub or table capture Chrome, Refine, Tabula, Qgis, R and R studio; all working. Just in case: running Win10 in a virtual box.
One small problem: I love Tableau public for viz. Not available for Linux (yet)....starting with plot.ly. Better integration with R.
