Operating system

Recommended Posts

I have a 5 year old laptop that was pretty advanced for its day but it no longer has an operating system. I would like to use it as a spare but DONOT want to put any money into it. I HATE windows 10 and really do not want to go that route. I've seen Windows 7 and 8 on eBay for a decent price. Is there anything other than Windows I should look at?

What is it that you "HATE" about Windows 10 and like so much about 7 or 8?  8 is a completely different OS and 7 is an awful lot like 10......and all other windows systems with the exception of 8.  Unless you are getting into the guts of the OS,  7 & 10 are basically the same and share an almost identical GUI. I'm not judging, I'm just wondering. 

With that being said, the only thing I cannot tolerate with 10 is Microsoft Edge but with one click and literally 30 seconds it can be disabled and a browser of your choice can be set as the default.

Not sure why you dislike 10 but you can put a Linux system on. Be prepared to learn command prompt and a whole new way of working with a computer. You can also change it into a chrome book and go that route. What is it about 10 that you do not like?

I just don't like the layout. I loked 7 better. Senko lover I would love to get an Apple but not in the budget right now. 

The school I work for just upgraded all the teachers laptops to Mac Airs. I wanted to buy one of the old ones but due to contract issues with Apple that is not a possibility. Sad because Apple is going to take the old ones, refurbish them, then sell them online.?

Apple computers are limiting in my experience... Especially when it comes to gaming, but I'm sure the OP isn't gonna be no life-ing video games on his PC lol

Linux Mint Cinnamon if you want something that closely resembles Windows. Easy peasy to use with almost no learning curve.
