the great computer rescue

My Mac system is still dead. There is nothing to be done for now. I am too frustrated to even address that problem. 

But my antiquated laptop? I breathed some life into it for the hundredth time.

When I bought the laptop, almost ten years ago, it was state of the art. Now, it is the most basic thing a person could use. Unfortunately, it crashed and after the crash, I was saddened to learn that Windows no longer supports my dual processors. Which is strange because technically I have the required base specs for Windows 7.

Fed up, I turned to Linux. Which is not only free, but running perfectly. Yay, open source!

The irritating thing about Linux is how little support there is from third party programmers. As if it would be really too much trouble to create a Linux version. But, I am thinking even when I get my sweet new PC laptop. I'll always try to have a Linux machine around for it's rock solid stability.

If you have a similar problem with your old-ass-piece-of-garbage-pc, I suggest using Ubuntu. Also, I found a lot of helpful information from Nixie Pixel to jump into the Linuxing world.
