IMHO, if your going to use it just for the Ham Shack...dump the Windows and load up Linux...

It is a bit of a learning curve BUT I am running Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon on an HP Pavillion and liking it much more than WIN 10...

In fact as soon as I get my Linux legs under me I will be converting a Toshiba Satellite over to the same.


If your not sure about the change, you can put Linux on a CD and run it off the disc....that way if you decide not to use it nothing is lost...just eject the disc and reboot back to whatever Windows demon-ware you are comfortable with...


Good Luck

Can in from a service call, and found a large box on the porch, it is a used, but working emachine PC running XP.  No wireless card in it so I'll have to move it in the shop close to the modem.  A couple of days to clean out and uninstall games and such.  



Any windows gurus?
