No Windows 10, no Office 2019, says Microsoft

Re: As soon as Windows 7 support finishes

Well you say that but for me Linux has never lunched its registry, slowed to a crawl because it wants to update even thought I've told it not to (Windows 10), succumbed to viruses or malware, forced a reboot when I'm in the middle of something or just decided, for no very good reason, to stop working.

Most people these days don't install anything much beyond games once initial setup is done. My dad and my uncle both moved from XP to Mint Mate. I no longer get support calls and they're both very happy.

As far as I can see gaming and what machines are sold with are the only things holding Linux back in the home. If you want an appliance PC Mint is a much better choice than Win10.
