Windows Vista End Of Life

On April 11 support for Windows Vista will end.

That means you will no longer get updates for your OS

I advise you to switch to a user friendly Linux version.

Suggested versions :

Linux Mint LTS versions :
Linux Mint 17.x 18.x and Linux Mint Debian Edition 2
You can download them here

Ubuntu-MATE LTS 16.04.x
Xubuntu LTS 16.04.x
Lubuntu LTS 16.04.x
PeppermintOS (based on Ubuntu 16.04)

If you need help to switch or want more advise about the different versions, just fill in the contact form or leave a reply.

Resumed Linux support

January 7 I resumed Linux support due to the demand for support because of the End Of Life of Linux Mint 13 LTS, Ubuntu LTS versions 12.04 and Windows Vista.

The service is still free if you come to my place.
I don’t have transportation, so I can only visit you if it’s not to far by public transport, and you pay the expences.

If necessary I can give remote support by mail, messenger service or phone.

See also the old support page in Dutch, and in English (Google Translate)

It might be a good idea to install a Linux distribution besides your Vista, so you can get used to it 😉

Some great alternatives for Windows Vista are :

Debian GNU/Linux
Linux Mint LTS / Linux Mint Debian Edition
Lubuntu LTS
Ubuntu MATE LTS
Xubuntu LTS
