Question from Jules K.: The hard drive on my fairly Acer old laptop died and I bought a 500GB SSD to replace it.
Since I have to reinstall the operating system anyway I’m seriously considering installing Linux on it instead of Windows 7 (I still have the Window 7 CD) since Microsoft is no longer supporting it.
The only thing I use this laptop for is keeping up with several of my favorite websites so I’m not really worried about running any Windows programs on it.
