Now that my home brew PC is up and running well. I'm contemplating upgrading my Windows XP Pro to Win 7 or possibly something else. Linux is one of the other possibilities...it looks to be a lot less expensive than Win 7 and I'm wondering why? Insights from those in-the-know please! TIA
The PC is mostly used for typical family stuff...surfing, videos, music, games, homework, taxes, etc.
