Windows XP is Dead
Microsoft's beloved operating system has been given the axe. As of April 2014 there will be no more updates coming for this old workhorse.
For those who still have computers running XP, this places you in a dangerous predicament. If you keep using the computer, you risk getting attacked by hackers and your personal information stolen. What do you do if you can't afford to buy a new machine?
There is one option available that your wallet will love. Linux is now the most popular operating system in the world. You see it every day on Android smartphones, tablets, Google Chromebooks and many other devices.
Ubuntu is a version of Linux that is designed to be easy for beginners to learn yet powerful enough for expert users. Unlike with Google Chrome OS, you don't have to buy a Chromebook to get Ubuntu. You can download and install it for free!
Ubuntu works especially well with older computers, so your XP machines are an ideal candidate for this powerful, budget-friendly operating system.
In this book you will learn:
* A brief history of Linux
* How Linux awakens the Inner Cheapskate
* The things you need to safely try out Ubuntu for yourself
* Where to get Ubuntu
* How to give Ubuntu a test drive - *without* making any changes to your computer
* How to install Ubuntu
* Tips and tricks to maximize your Ubuntu experience
By following the instructions in this book you will learn that you don't have to be at the mercy of giant corporations trying to take your money.
Instead, you can choose to keep your older computers in use for as long as *you* desire, without paying a single penny in outrageous upgrade fees.
