Alternatives For Windows 10 UsersAlternatives For Windows 10 Users
You will be no longer to get Windows 10 for free after this month,
according to Microsoft. Users have to pay to either get a copy of
Windows 10 or to upgrade from an older version. This isn’t a good news
for anyone who hasn’t yet upgraded their PC or planning to build a
system of their own in near future. 
Here are Four alternatives to
Windows that you should consider in case you missed out on the free
upgrade window or if you are bothered by the privacy issues concerned
with the operating system and looking for a change.

Ubuntu

Ubuntu is world’s most popular free Operating System. It is Linux based
and used very widely across the globe. Noticeably, many important
government agencies across Europe and Asia use Ubuntu in their offices.
The fact that Ubuntu gets a free upgrade every year and it comes with
familiar apps like Firefox and Thunderbird along with free MS Office
alternative called Libre Office makes it a very valuable alternative.
Additionally, Ubuntu requires very fewer system resources enabling it
to run quite well on older systems and are mostly free of viruses and
malware.

Chrome OS

Chrome OS, the web-based Operating System developed by Google, has been
gaining popularity across North America in recent years. Its rising
popularity is so evident that in many online stores such Amazon the best
selling computers are Chromebooks pushing Windows PCs to second place.
Although, it may seem that you must need a Chromebook to run the Chrome
OS, a little workaround developed by New York based start- up Neverware
makes it easy to install it on any computer.
It is light on
resources and is automatically updated regularly. You can find our guide
on how to turn your computer to a Chromebook here.

Hackintosh

If you don’t want Windows on your system, then why not install MacOS on
it? No, it certainly isn’t a joke. Making Hackintosh computers, or
computers build with MacOS is a very popular choice among many PC
building enthusiasts.
Running a MacOS on anything other than a
MacBook can be considered illegal, but so far there hasn’t been any
legal problem with regard to individuals making Hackintosh PCs. However,
the main problem is that not all hardware work with the Hackintosh, and
finding drivers for the hardware component can be a nightmare.
If you are willing to sacrifice a lot of time and energy in building a
PC then it can be an option and you can find many guides explaining how
to do it on the internet.

Linux Mint

Linux Mint is almost same as Ubuntu internally as they both are Linux
based operating systems and apps and software for both are always the
same.
However, where Linux Mint, despite being a lesser-known
Operating System than Ubuntu, gained its popularity is through easy to
use user interfaces called Cinnamon and Mate.
They look very
similar to Windows in many ways, unlike Ubuntu’s Unity which bears more
resemblance to the MacOS. The familiar visual elements such as taskbar
and Start Menu like application launcher found in Linux Mint eliminate
the learning curve of moving to a new Operating System.
