I've formally given up with windows, got sick of the slow speeds on the 7 version I have which is about to have support ended, and Vista which had support ended some time ago. I was inputting text into 7 and finding usually when I pressed the spacebar, the cursor moved back and created what I can only describe as sheer nonsense. So years after a friend of mine told me Linux was so much better an operating system and free to users, I have downloaded it. There are many different versions but the one I have used after several attempts, is Mint 18.3. And to prove a point that is the longest post I have been able to make without constantly checking to see where the cursor is and correcting, or just giving up after several futile attempts to make sense. Hope all is well with what few contributing members we have, and still a heavy heart after the loss of Frank Damp.

How are you getting on with Linux Noel? I've converted a laptop to a Chromebook. It hasn't got all the bells and whistles of a Win10 machine but it does what I want and is farly fast.

Getting on really well Martin, friends of mine have been using it for years and kept telling me to adopt it. MS stopped supporting the windows versions I was using, XP Vista and 7 and 7 in particular got so clogged up with what I can only call technically crap, it became impossible to use. I've got Zorin OS 15 on my ancient desk top PC and it runs really well. My lap tops have different systems on but I rarely use either of them now, it's much easier to switch the old PC on which is permanently plugged in.
