Windows XP support has been discontinued and Vista “Extended Support” ended April 11, 2017! Windows 8 / 8.1 was a disaster with their no real start button menu blunder. Are you going to put your faith in Windows 10? Does your computer meet the minimum specs to run it? Don’t worry, Linux Mint to the rescue.
Don’t dispose of your perfectly good working computer. Give your laptop or desktop computer a new lease on life with the Linux Mint 18 operating system. Along with the unlimited free and open source software that is also included and available (like the Chrome and Firefox web browsers, Skype, Dropbox and LibreOffice to list a few), say goodbye to Microsoft Windows!
A few of the many reasons to switch over to Linux Mint 18:
It is extremely secure, stable and safe to use (no need to run an anti-virus software).
Run 24/7, 365 days a year with no down time.
Your computer will run faster and need less ram memory than Windows XP.
Works on most any desktop or laptop computer.
With a push of a button, you can install software and updates to the operating system. All the software you need and security updates are in the Distributions Repository file system using the Software Center.
Linux Mint 18 can be installed on just about every computer there is.
Steam is now supporting many of the highly popular games in Linux through their gaming platform easily installed through Linux Mint 18 Over 2,500 games now play on Steam through Linux!
Best of all, you will never have to pay for the Linux Mint 18 operating system and the installed software again! It is all open source software and is free to use indefinitely and can be installed in as many computers as you want.
