New Laptops For Old - free and open-source software
On line ZOOM Presentation
This seminar was first presented on the 8th July. The event was oversubscribed and a number of people expressed an interest in hearing it again. Please register and we will look forward to meeting you on the 12th August 2020.
A common fate for a Windows PC after a few years is to be retired because it's out-of-date.
Even if its hardware is healthy, a computer will run more slowly when old than it did when new.
The problem will be its software. There's a simple solution: use free and open-source software instead.
As a general rule, any PC will run noticeably faster under Linux than under Windows.
Rebuilding an old PC with a Linux software distribution gives it a new lease of life. This talk will show you what to do. The task is surprisingly easy, and the software costs nothing!
