Renard wrote a very nice article about Linux as the practical way to replace Win7.
I just stumbled when I read “Win7” … why just Win7 when you’re soon be forced to agree to a monthly or so licensing agreement with Microsoft. Believe me, it will happen soon and you’ll lose all ownership of “your software” and become a renter.
Microsoft would be ending its support for Windows 7 on Tuesday the 14th of January, 2020. Therefore, the people who have no intention of upgrading to Windows 10, will have to find an alternative operating system.
Luckily for those people, there is a free alternative — Linux (Which in my opinion, is a thousand times better than sticking with an old Microsoft operating system that will no longer be supported).
The great news is that there are a lot of Linux distributions that are easy to use right out-of-box and I am going to recommend six of them (It is up to you to choose any one of them to permanently replace Windows 7).
