Windows 7: I want to stick with W7 - 2020 workaround?

Windows 7 x64 SP1

[QUOTE=Bertison;3224821][QUOTE=Stevekir;3224168]I sincerely hope that, at the age of 71, I don't have to tax my remaining brain cells with learning Linux. I have arrived at a happy place with 7 and I have loved it since first installation.

I am getting my wife a new laptop for her 70th birthday, and will be putting Mint 18 on it. I will greatly enjoy nuking Windows 10 in the process. If that proves too much for her, I will install elementary os, which is incredibly user-friendly, much more so in fact than windows-any-version.

As for taxing your brain cells, I highly recommend it. Use it or lose it, you know...
