DoctorLaptop’s February Special: Get ready for the Windows 7 Phase Out!
It’s time to get to know Linux. Free yourself from the Microsoft chains!
I can install a Linux System beside your Windows 7 system. You power up your computer and are offered a choice of systems to start. You can even access your files in the Windows 7 system when running the Linux system, which makes the transition much less painful. No need for duplicate files in each system.
Your computer must have 100Gb free space on its hard drive, to allow for the new system and still leave room for your Windows 7 to run properly.
Price, €100, includes a lesson when you pick it up to familiarize you with the layout. But don’t worry, the version of Linux I use looks very similar to Windows 7. If you want to see Zorin Linux in action make an appt to come by to my workshop one afternoon (no charge); I use Zorin to create DigameXtra everyday so you can see Zorin in action.

Naythan/Torrox Costa Tel. 675 993 069, no calls before 11am please.
