Current OS is Win 7 Sp-1 Pro. Though I have several years support for this OS I have no intention of upgrading to Win 10, (for all of the reasons discussed not only here at BC but other forums as well.)
With that being said, I have downloaded and utilized a Live DVD of Linux Mint Cinnamon 17.2 (at the suggestion of members here), to become familiar with a new OS. I really like it !
I would appreciate any input from members as to my next steps to take. There is only one computer in this household and it is a desktop. Would it be advantageous to purchase a used or refurbished machine to install Linux and keep the current desktop with Win 7? JohnC_21 made this suggestion in the Win X Discussion Forum.
I know Linux plays well on older machines through posts made here and was wondering if this may be my best options or perhaps others could offer different options?
Just trying to get my "ducks in a row" through systematic planning and by exploring further all that Linux has to offer.
