Fix 8: Switch to lớn ChromeOS


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

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Spotify), the entire Windows way of doing things – with locally installed programs and local file storage – is totally outdated.

Why is that a problem? Because when you’re constantly installing uncontrolled third-party programs, you’re constantly opening the door khổng lồ viruses & 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 & saved locally, it doesn’t take long before you run out of disk space, & your disk gets fragmented, which makes everything even slower and more unstable.

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

Google ChromeOS.

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

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

And that’s just the start of the benefits…
