Migrating Drives from Windows to Unix server

uz flag

I am planning to migrate from a Windows operating System to a Unix based System.

My thought fell to ubuntu server at first but I have not put much thought into which distro to use yet.

Right now, there are 5 * 14.5 TB hdds packed full with important company Data initialized with GPT. Will it be possible to "plug and play" those drives or is it better to back them up, reinitialize /format them in my Unix server and restore the Data from backup? I would like to minimize downtime but it might be the most clean solution.

Huh? You don't already have backups? That data can't be very important, then! In any case, yes Linux will read your disks.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
