Despite being extremely close to the deadline for the free Windows 10 upgrade, I still haven't purchased Windows 7 Ultimate due to the insane high prices for a retail copy.
For the moment I have a Windows Vista PC that I initially decided to upgrade to Windows 7 with. However the computer is more than 7 years old, so I am wondering if there is any point investing any more money on it and should rather buy a new PC with Windows 10 installed.
I have never tried Linux because it sounded very complicated but I am now curious about taking advantage of the old computer and finally learning how Linux perhaps works
Besides, it is free according to articles I googled. I wanted Windows 7 Ultimate because you can switch langauges whenever you want. To my knowledge, this feature is not available in a regular edition?
Retail versions of W7 Ultimate happen to cost more than 200 dollars and I heard that you cannot fully trust an OEM version if you decide to revert back to Windows 7 after testing Windows 10.
Should I take the plunge and take advantage of the opportunity to learn Linux or should I make the upgrade to Windows 7 or 10? Since the computer is old, it would not matter much if I damaged it by fooling around in Linux.
