Consider Linux.


You can use a distro like Linux Mint without having to go hard all hard core ...

 

It Just works.

Hanna, I do not comprehend what you mean. Do you mean that you can install and configure it by just using the graphical user interface and not have to use the command line? I have not played with Linux lately, but when I did, none of what I played with required you to use the command line inputs to get them working successfully.

Extraordinary Rendition posted some weird comments and the member was deleted by the Webmaster. This post is tame but numerous others have been deleted.

Ignore it!

Most users here would not have a clue what this is all about.

And I am not being critical.

You can install Linux Mint to boot and run from a usb stick, I have it installed on a 128gb USB stick its fully functional dosnt make any changes to your to pc/laptop dard drive.

To learn more just search YouTube for "setting linx Mint on a bootable USB drive". Be sure to have a look at a couple of vids to see which one suits you.

I've been using Linux Ubuntu for years, it's a great way of getting a lot more years out of an old computer. Perfect if Web browsing and email are your uses.
