Alternative Operating Systems to Windows

Are you planning to replace your Windows operating system (OS)? If so, then you have to change to a more advanced operating system than your previous one. In this article, we will be talking about some faster, more attractive, and more useful alternative operating systems than Windows.

Linux Mint
Linux Mint, often referred to as Mint Linux, is another alternative Windows personal computer (PC) operating system based on Linux.It is a free and open source operating system (OS) distribution for use on x-86 and x-64 compatible machines, based on Ubuntu and Debian. Mint includes proprietary third-party browser plugins, Java, media codecs, and other components to support commonly accepted standards. This support enables DVD playback and Blu-ray, as well as streaming media Flash. Although the operating system includes a firewall, Mint claims that anti-malware is not needed. Mint is compatible with the Ubuntu installer, allowing access to 30,000 free, open source software pieces.

There are several different Mint desktop editions to support different hardware, including Cinnamon, GNOME, XFCE, and KDE. The operating system is also available in an alternative Linux Mint Debian Edition for those who are more familiar with Linux. This edition is less intuitive and user-friendly, but also faster and responsive.

You computer needs to meet some system requirements before you can use Linux Mint as its operating system. Firstly, it must have at least 1 Gigabyte (GB) of random-access memory (RAM) space. However, it is recommended to have about 2GB of RAM  for a comfortable usage. Next, there must be a minimum of 15GB of hard disk space although 20GB is recommended. Finally, the system runs on a 1024×768 resolution.

Elementary OS
Elementary is an Ubuntu-based distribution OS that is designed to focus on the beauty and ease of use of your desktop screen. It comes with its beautiful “Pantheon” interface and is such an operating system type that emphasises ease of operation. The program includes so many features such as, the internet, Bluetooth, sound and battery applets.

Elementary OS features a notification centre that provides you with the ability to control all the apps installed. You may need to keep some apps in a non-disruptive mode so you can run other apps more smoothly. The underlying OS enables you to do this. It is designed to be user-friendly whether you are a doctor, police officer, teacher, banker or other occupations.

Elementary OS works best on a solid state drive (SSD) with about 15 GB of free space. In addition, you will need internet access to run it. Your computer system must also have the latest Intel i3 or comparable dual-core 64-bit processor and 4 GB of system memory (RAM) to run it. Finally, your screen must be on 1024×768 display.
