Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Old computers can get a new life just by installing Linux (e.g. Ubuntu), Linux typically uses less resources than an equivalent version of Windows. It is also known to have less viruses than Windows (I'm not going to lie there ARE viruses for Linux but nowhere near as many) and FOLLOWS INSTRUCTIONS better than Windows. Windows normally hides everything it does from you, and also hides files (even when "show all hidden files and folders" is selected!). Linux also hides things from you but it is much easier to get it to show you EXACTLY what it is doing at any given moment than Windows. Also Ubuntu has a package manager and software centre that makes finding FREE applications and installing/uninstalling them quick and easy, it takes seconds to do!
