Linux mint try it its free why pay for windows

Guys get with the plan why are you still using windows, Linux be it Mint, Ubuntu or any other version is free, you download it to your pc or laptop

and boot it from disc, have a test before you install it (run it from disc) as soon as you like it it helps you install it left hand disc the disc image says install !! how easy

no code’s to mess up no issues with invalid keys etc, its simply and everything works well as it should except SKY go moonlight hasn’t been updated so thats a no goer

DO it or get somebody to do it for you !!!!!!!!!!!
