Windows 11 News


Windows 11

Windows 11 (the newest version of the Windows system) has proved to be a problem for some people who try to install it on older computers, if they are able to. It only works well on much newer computers and it's redesigned menu system is unpopular with many people.

However, if you are happy using Windows 10, you can continue to do so, and Windows 10 will remain supported and updated by Microsoft until 2025.

If you need to buy a new computer, and want to try a system other than Windows:

Windows computers are the least secure and most vulnerable to malware and viruses. That is why computers running other systems (such as those that I have described below) don't need anti-virus software installed. So, you may want to consider:

1) Purchasing A New Apple Mac PC
Apple Mac computers are well designed, well built computers. They are also quite easy to learn to use. The downside is the price - they are expensive.

2) Purchasing A Chromebook
If you don't really need to do much more than email and a little web browsing, a Chromebook might be great idea for you. If you already use Google Chrome as your web browser, you should have no difficulty using one, For between £250 to £500, you can buy a brand new laptop that is light to carry and has a very long battery life.

3) Upgrading Your Existing Computer To Linux
If your existing computer is in a good condition and your believe it has a few years of life left in it, then I could re-install it with Linux. Unlike Windows, Linux and all the software that you need to use on it, is free. I charge approximately £40.00 to upgrade computers to Linux for my customers and give them a quick training session in how to use it. I have upgraded about 15 people so far. No one has needed any additional training and no one has wanted to go back to using Windows again.
