I'm sorry for not having an answer yet, as I need to get around to trying this. I've just had so many other things going on in my life I haven't had much time to try it. And with Windows 10 still good for nearly another 4 years I haven't had much incentive to hurry up and try Linux either.I'm curious how things did go with you and Linux? Did you learn it and migrated to it? Or did you go back to Windows?
I just helped another friend get his ol' laptop sped up with some RAM and an SSD. It's these situations that I ask myself if I'm doing the right thing. Would he have been better off saving his money for a new W11 compatible computer than to spend $50 on computer parts and us going through the headache of getting his computer setup again only to be good for another 4 years? Will I be able to help him switch to Linux when the time comes?
The Windows 10 end-of-life deadline shouldn't bother me as much as it does. But it seems like I know so many people that will all need computers by that time if I don't think up of an alternative.
