How does Linux?
So, I have an old laptop that I no longer use. It still works but it's slow as molasses and completely out of date. I don't want to throw it out so I figured "Hey Linux is free, why not convert it into a Linux based gadget and have some fun with the old clunker." Except I have NO idea what I'm doing, I've pretty much stripped from it all I need when I retired it, will do another check tho. But here's the question. How exactly do I convert a Windows 7 laptop to Linux? And yes I have google searched it, but I need results in English that even a mechanical moron such as myself can understand.
