We should praise that Windows is a great improvement on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 and as an operating system, it is really good. But, if you have a old hardware, we do not suggest you run it, you better install Linux instead of Windows 10. So, what are the reasons? Find out below!
It is a classic issue when you have an older hardware, it means that you do not have a chance to run Windows 8 and Windows 10. But, there are two options; buying a new device to run new Windows or running Linux. As you know that Linux is friendly to work brilliantly on older hardware. You can try new hardware Linux Mint with the Cinnamon Desktop Environment. One of the reasons why your old hardware is not capable to run Windows 10 is Windows 10 has a huge size to download and a great footprint. It makes your computer works slow. But you do not need to worry because Linux offers you a light size which is less than 2 gigabytes.
Moreover, you can enjoy many more free applications if your computer runs Linux. Offers you a great set of application which you could need like the LibreOffice, the Rhythmbox, VLC, the Chrome, GIMP, as well as Evolution. Talking about the performance? Linux offers you a faster running that Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 on your old hardware because of its lighter footprint. And, how is about the security? Microsoft only can do a little about this issue by installing antivirus and firewall software which consume your storage a lot. Meanwhile, Linux is more secure than Windows and only requires you to avoid using Adobe’s Flash and clever to the repositories.
