Fix 7: Switch to ChromeOS

Windows is a very old giải pháp công nghệ. Sure, Windows 10 is relatively new, but it’s still just the lachạy thử iteration of a decades-old operating system, designed for a bygone era (pre-internet).

Now that we have the mạng internet, fast connection speeds, miễn phí cloud storage, và endless website apps (lượt thích Gmail, Google Docs, Slack, Facebook, Dropbox and Spotify), the entire Windows way of doing things – with locally installed programs và local file storage – is totally outdated.

Why is that a problem? Because when you’re constantly installing uncontrolled third-tiệc ngọt programs, you’re constantly opening the door khổng lồ viruses and other malware. (And Windows’ insecure permission system compounds this problem.)

Plus the way Windows manages installed software & hardware has always been a problem. If your computer shuts down unexpectedly, or a program installs, uninstalls or updates incorrectly, you can get ‘registry’ corruptions. That’s why Windows PCs always slow down and become unstable over time.

Also because everything’s installed and saved locally, it doesn’t take long before you run out of disk space, and your disk gets fragmented, which makes everything even slower và more unstable.

For most people, the simplest way to solve sầu Windows problems is to lớn ditch Windows altogether, and switch khổng lồ a faster, more reliable, more secure, easier to lớn use và cheaper operating system…

Google ChromeOS.

ChromeOS feels much lượt thích Windows, but instead of installing heaps of programs lớn tin nhắn, chat, browse the internet, write documents, vì school presentations, create spreadsheets, & whatever else you normally vị on a computer, you use web apps. You don’t need lớn install anything at all.

That means you don’t have sầu virut và malware problems, & your computer doesn’t slow down over time, or become unstable.

And that’s just the start of the benefits…
