Time to Upgrade Your Old Computer!


Microsoft is ending Windows XP support.

This means that there will be no more software updates and the Windows XP laptop you have will run a very high risk of malware infection.

So what are your options?

Upgrade to Windows 7 or 8?
It is possible but you run a risk of hardware incompatibility and still having a slow system.

Puppy Linux LiveCD or LiveUSB?

This is the easiest option since you don’t have to back up, reformat, migrate files, or set up a new hard drive partition.

(We will get into hard drive backups and encryption in a later post.)

You can still get the same functionality as your old Windows XP system but with much faster boot times!
