I get hand me down computers, with old operating system which I upgrade to Windows 10 operating systems. One 8″ would not work with Windows 10 so I install the free Linux Mint operating system. Linux is very similar to Windows and includes free software, a word processor, spread sheet and presentation software compatible with MS Office and many others that are included or can be downloaded for free.
Linux doesn’t really need an antivirus application and you will notice few if any popups or spam. It is simpler but if you use specific Windows or Apple software, it will not work in Linux (such as Quicken or Quickbooks). Chrome is included and for an email application they include Mozilla Thunderbird and FireFox.
If you should need help with your computer, I have a remote access software they will allow me to log on to the computer and show you how to use it or help fix any issues that come up.
Currently I have three desktop (all Windows 10 and solid state hard drives) Desktops includes the keyboard, mouse and I have one that includes a free display. The laptop has a battery that might need replacement since it is old. I have a 27″ display I can sell at a discount but it is missing the stand.
Feel free to take one and try it out. If you don’t think it is right for you, please be sure to return it for someone else to use.
