I am feeling encouraged now David. I actually read all the info about Manjaro Linux and don't feel so nervous about giving it a try.
Looks like I need an old computer but not too old as it needs 64bit
I looked at all the images and understood a bit more than I expected to.
Would it be best to find a local person with specific experience with Linux to install it? 🤔
I have spoken to a couple of people a few years ago who did not understand what my problem is with Microsoft! 🙄


@anniemo71 if your computer is 32bit you have lots of options such as mxlinux.org/download-links/

All you need to get started is software to download the Linux operating system (eg manjaro.org/download/plasma) put the iso image onto a USB stick. I haven't tried it but this looks ok lifewire.com/how-to-burn-an-is

Then you enter the 'boot menu' at startup of computer, normally by pressing F1 or F10 (search will tell you what to press for your machine) and boot from usb
