This is a total non-tech guy question. I get "news" from Linux about new versions. Right now I'm running on an old Dell laptop Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa. All seems to run well. I don't mess with lots of command line stuff and only use for stuff like radio shows, BG, personal email, sometimes movies. Not for work or finance or anything secure. Not sure if I should or need to upgrade. BUT if one does to latest versions does it entail a whole new computer (that is wiping out everything) or does going to a newer version of Mint etc keep the files you got and just update the Linux OS? (Again, I dont know much about computers or Linux but used because old laptop faster and system stable.)

Solus is great, if I didn't need Adobe suite for work, I'd never boot into Win10.

I rather like Solus myself.  It is what I run on my home rig.

If his system is old enough that it's 32-bit, Solus won't work for him.
Looks like a nice little distro though. (Pretty sure I've come across this previously.)

You can also use Windows+X to access this menu

Thanks

I never migrated to 10, I'm still using 8.1

I never wanted to leave XP.

It was about time someone started a Linux thread, so I put my reply there.   ;)

Thanks for the suggestions. Iím running Windows 10 64-bit because I have to use Cakewalk ( now Bandlab) and Adobe Master Suite and Word (Open and Libre Office have copy and paste problems that have been complained about for many years and not fixed and I have to use those functions).

My current box is old, so Iíll be building a new computer soon. Iíll try your suggestions on my old box after I build the new one.

Glad to see the Linux thread.
