Ubuntu Linux, Free, Fast, and Very Easy to Use
If you were to need a new operating system for your computer, might I make a suggestion? Ubuntu Linux Distribution is an excellent OS for you to consider. It's an open source project, which means it's community created and 100% free to use. It's also significantly smaller than any Windows install, and uses far less resources, that means it will run faster and more efficiently, and can even breathe life back into an older machine you might have lying around...sort of making it a green product! Installation is quick and simple, once you create an ISO image of the install disk on a cd (instructions are on their website), and can even be installed inside Windows without having to create a partition!!! This will let you test it out and see if it's for you prior to making the full plunge. It does everything an OS is supposed to do, and it comes with OpenOffice and an email client to boot, it's the complete package. Save yourself the 300$ Microsoft would have you pay them for an OS, and stop feeding a corporate Juggernaut, and give this bad boy a try! You heard this straight up from an IT professional!
