Windows Alternatives

Want to upgrade your old Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista or XP, but you don’t want to buy a new computer?

Tired of fighting off viruses and paying for new versions of software?

Want to use your old computer, yet be fully compatible with others?

You don’t have to buy a new computer to run an up-to-date and very secure operating system. Linux is a mature and very well-supported alternative to Windows. The desktop interface looks and feels very similar to Windows. Best of all, it is free, fast, and secure. There is also Chrome OS, which allows you to do the most common tasks, such as web browsing, email, documents, and a host of other things quickly and easily.

There are thousands of open-source software packages available which in many cases also run on Windows and are compatible with familiar Windows software. For example, LibreOffice is fully compatible with Microsoft Office file formats, so you can work on your documents, spreadsheets and presentations at interchange them with others using Microsoft Office. Internet tools such as Firefox, Thunderbird, Google Chrome, etc are available and work the same in Linux as they do in Windows.
