If you have or haven’t heard about the website XP Options this posting is for you. The XP Options website seeks to provide some helpful tips for all computer users of older Windows distributions but especially targets users left in the cold by a defunct security vulnerable operating system known as Windows XP Since Microsoft stopped issuing security updates for it, it is highly recommend that users of that OS move on to something more secure. XP Options is a small bridge to help you with that.
I also want to introduce and recommend a new distribution of Linux for older computers (and new) called MakuluLinux 10 Aero Edition. The operating system emulates the look and feel of Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 10 using built-in themes. The core of the OS is Linux and it includes some great word processing software (WPS Office Suite) along with lots of pre-installed nuggets for helping one get online and to be overall productive. The Opera web browser is included with this distribution while Firefox and Chrome browsers can be added from the included software center. So if you haven’t already, MakuluLinux 10 Aero is definitely worth a look!
Note about installation: I had trouble getting this distribution to run on a 32-bit laptop computer (with only 1gig of ram) but any desktop PC computer with at least 2 gigs is recommended
