Microsoft Fundamentals for Legacy PC's - any good ?

Discussion in 'Computing and ICT' started by kindling_not_vessels, Apr 29, 2012.

  1. I've just come across a reference to this on our MS download page and was wondering if anyone has tried it out.

    We've been offered some reconditioned P4 machines with plenty of RAM and I was wondering if using this stripped down OS would make them usable on out network. Our group policies restrict them so much I doubt if the kids would notice any difference anyway.
  2. It would be far easier to install Linux Mint (for free) to give you a Windows-like screen working with a modern OS that will support your old systems.

    ...but not run M$ apps of course.
  4. But they will run OpenOffice, Scribus, et al. It's not 'the same', but nor is it necessarily worse.

    In reference to the OP - no idea, sorry.
