    Is there a question here or just stating a fact that it no longer runs under Windows 10? I personally will not be going to Windows 10 for a long time unless forced to. Even then with the new way it's set up and supported I may just switch to Linux.

    For standard use, I've switched to Linux Mint. For IT pros looking at Linux and wondering, I strongly suggest watching Ebay for one or two used PCs or laptops and loading up Linux Mint 17 or 17.1.

    This laptop is a Lenovo T500 bought for $70 without a HDD (i.e., no OS) and with only 2GB RAM, no battery nor power adapter. But a 64-bit Core 2 Duo 2.53GHz processor, WiFi/Bluetooth, 15.1" LCD, and other niceties though; so I bought battery+power adapter for about $30 and plugged in a spare 120GB HDD (that I could've bought for maybe $25 but just had lying around), then downloaded Mint 17.1 and gave it a shot.

    After doing a couple days testing, I ordered a couple 4GB DIMMs and put it up to 8GB installed, and it's been a marvelous standard laptop for me for the past three months. Total dollar investment was approx $150. Learning experience value received...?? Much more.

    And I haven't totally dropped Windows. I learned to install/configure RDP, so I connect to a couple previous systems and run a couple apps that I haven't figured how to replace yet. (No, I know how; but I need to do stuff first.)

    In short, for IT pros, jumping from Windows to Linux can be close to painless. It can be done for very few dollars, none at all if you already have a spare PC. It just takes a little motivation. And I already like Mint better than I liked Windows for general usage.

    Thanks for the tip Raven, may have to dust of my wife's old Windows 97 desktop and give it a shot.

    Be sure to verify system requirements if it's an older PC. Installs are expected to be done via DVD, but USB is fairly easily possible.

    Something that runs Win98 might be a bit weak for a Linux like Mint. It's intended to be a comfortable alternative to Windows and to be a (relatively) easy transition. With the Cinnamon desktop, it's pretty nice. (Note that multiple desktops can be installed if you wish, and you can choose which one to boot into.) But such advanced stuff means it's a relatively (for Linux) hefty and demanding OS.

    If you'd wonder how well WinXP would run on the box, then a recent version of Mint would be as questionable.

    How did you get this! Which vendor supplied this.... If you properly purchased it, must have some papers/ manuals where clearly mentioned its system requirements. If you don't have asked the vendor from where you purchased.

    I have not upgraded to Win 10 yet. I have far, far too many questions that Microsoft has not answered about it yet, and now it seems that there is another. My major issue with Win 10 is that Microsoft has not said how many hoops that you will have to jump through in the migration to the new O/S. And also I have discovered that the Upgrade is not free to the Enterprise users of Windows. I am an independent consultant consultant, and that means most of my questions are related to the Enterprise version of the O/S, Since it is not free. I have not done it.

    Secondly with the upgrade and the migration of apps to the new O/S does it actually do the migration, or do you have to reinstall to get the apps over to the new O/S. These are the answers that I need and I have not seen this in anything that Microsoft has issued. I am also seeing more and more apps that are not moving and I am not overly approving of their licensing now either.
