It’ll run on anything, including aging hardware.....

So....you've arrived at the inevitable cross roads.....

 

You desktop or laptop, just doesnt have the necessary oomph to handle windows 10.....maybe not even windows 8 or 7.....??...!

 

or...the current windows you have on that old crapper of a desktop/laptop is Soooo full of garbage, malware, viruses etc etc....

 

XP is no longer secure enough....?? !

 

READ the article. It is simple. Easy to follow. Above all it is Honest

 

 

 

https://www.maketecheasier.com/switch-windows-10-to-linux/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=11012016

 

 

Privacy...??....n Windows 10 your privacy is mostly disregarded. A lot of aspects to Windows 10 are less than privacy-friendly.

 

If you value your privacy, avoiding Windows 10 is a must.

 

You won’t find a bubbly talking assistant on your Linux desktop collecting data and information on you for financial gain.

 

What’s even more important is that if a Linux distribution is found to disregard your privacy, it will be quickly called out by the large community of Linux developers and fixed quickly.

Free operating systems for life......

 

Better security

 

Go on....you know you want to....stick to the old principle.....K.I.S.S ......and it will just unfold in front of you.

 

Write a list of the "new" program names that do stuff in Linux ....once you have used them a few times, your habit will form....and it will be a breeze.

Good article!

If you value your privacy, avoiding Windows 10 is a must.

This did it for me...
And the understanding that "FREE software/OS" has not necessary anything to do with money!
