Should I upgrade to Windows 10 or Linux?

Episode 1308 (1:55:46)

G.Scott from Minnesota

G. Scott is thinking of putting Linux on an old computer. Leo says that's a great way to breathe new life into old hardware. Another option is Chrome OS. CloudReady is the site he'll want to use to get that done.

G Scott also wants to get Windows 10. Leo says to get a fresh stand alone version of Windows 10. When it installs, he'll be able to input his Windows 7 key to authenticate to Windows 10. That way he'll have the free Windows 10 upgrade. He can then downgrade if he wants and can upgrade it later.

If he goes with Linux, he could run Microsoft Office with Wine. Leo says that Linux comes with its own open source office called Libre Office and it's just as good.
