Linux Mint on an old machine

Posted 06-18-2010 at 10:53 AM by stuartd
Tags mint, windows

2.unlike windows,linux is 100% immune to viruses.so,we don't need an anti-virus which means we are not using our power,time to download an anti-virus,update it,scan the computer.

3.linux never hangs up,so,u need not...
