Alternatives to Windows revised 12-18-18
Windows is not the only game in town. There are alternatives.
I installed Elementarty OS on an older computer and it is faster than any of my windows machines. Click the Download for free link.
There are alternatives to Microsoft Windows. Various Linux based programs are available from other places such as Red Hat. Check this page for some manufacturers. Or just Google Linux based computers.
And of course you can have one custom built by various companies.
Of course there is the other alternative called Mac, but expect to pay a lot more. Simple, works well, but costly.
Here is a list of alternative operating systems: http://alternatives.rzero.com/os.html
