I just got my ex-Vista Lap Top back …
The 2nd hand junk heap never worked properly, had nothing on it including no security and finally the keyboard and one of the USB slots went.
After taking it back tot eh sup Liars and wasting my money (30 quid and no use) I finally took it to TERC a recycler in the area.
I asked them to put a new keyboard and OS on it and fix the USB connection. And to get me a linux distro that would wok on my ISP dongle.
This is what I got:

Because Zorin OS is based on Ubuntu, help is easy to find which makes Zorin OS a well supported Linux distribution. Zorin OS is licensed by GNU General Public License v3 which means that users are free to run, copy, distribute, study, change, develop and improve the software.
Zorin OS is also free just like most Linux distributions, with premium editions available that provides users with more preinstalled features and packages.
I haven't really used it yet just tried itr out over a cup of tea.
I loved it though at first sight.
It doesn't remind me of Windows in any way or form, thank goodness. It reminds me of an early Ubuntu. They originally put Mint on it but ended up with the same no ISPO problem I had.
They must have tried to find one that was this good because they hadn't used it before. And now they are putting it on all their computers if anyone asks for Linux.
Since I might know a couple of people who coiuld use one, I asked how much a lap top is. (I'd just paid £40 for the repairs) £80.
I spotted a couple of old flat-top boxes and asked how much they were £90. I wondered why so much for an old fashioned looking desk-top but before I could ask he said they were dual cored (or multi cored I forget.)
So that isn't a bad price fro a superb non gamer. I was really happy (so far) with my upgrade. Here's hoping.
