I have not been around lately, my computer seems to be crashing a lot lately. I did memory, hard drive and CPU tests and all come up OK. The only new thing is I have noticed some new nag programs from Microsoft reminding me that support for windows 7 is ending. Funny thing, these seem to hang in memory.
Firefox seems to use somewhere around 3 Gig of RAM and the operating system is over 1 Gig of RAM and I can only put 4 Gig in this machine. Time for a new machine I guess. But not a Windows Machine.
I have to contact Wondershare, HDHomerun Viewscan and Haupauge to see if they have compatable programs that will run under Ubumtu.
I asked my son to help me make the transition on my aging PC to Ubuntu.
I also told him I will need a few program suggestions that would mimic what I currently use like Mozilla Thunderbird and Notepad+ without a steep learning curve. As well as some sort of Windows emulator to run Adobe Photoshop 4 and 7.
That’s the secondary reason.
