Rofl

Step 1: Don't use Microsoft products.

For anything even remotely critical. A system being able to be infected just by clicking a link is unacceptable no matter how you look at it. This is far from the first time that has happened, so Microsoft has had plenty of time to demonstrate responsibility.

Not to mention for whatever reason, people still can't internet properly.

I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of the infected were older people.

Uhm, same happened to my brother years ago. School Survival is the last community you'd expect to make ageist comments.
We're not talking about trojans here. We're talking about instant code execution exploits.

Meanwhile Chrome OS and Ubuntu are just sitting there eternally awaiting their mass adoption. Microsoft has more business strategists and lobbyists than programmers.

True that. Though I think a lot of older people (unfortunately) tend to get scammed when it comes to shit like fake software (MacKeeper comes to mind, then the infamous Indian "technician" scam)

Please do not use Apple products either, since they are expensive, and very hard to modify.

There's also always ReactOS, which is a free open-source clone of Windows, especially Windows 95 and Windows Server 2003. It's been in development There are countless operating systems that are obscure, and they are worth trying. ReactOS has been in development since 1998, and you can help contribute to ReactOS's development. There's also an free open-source clone of DOS, such as AppleDOS, AmigaDOS, and MS-DOS as well, called FreeDOS. FreeDOS has also been in development since 1998, and it's still being worked on, and of course, you can contribute to FreeDOS's development.

No. Though I thought y'all would have an interesting discussion about it anyway.

ReactOS would be more widely known if only more people contributed to ReactOS's development and people spoke more about ReactOS.

Have you USED ReactOS? How is a research-project-OS relevant to this subject?

Yes, I've used ReactOS on VirtualBox, although ReactOS I heard works much better outside of VirtualBox.

VirtualBox isn't real usage. Sorry for being rude, but, please don't go around recommending alpha-phase stuff to random people. Calling ReactOS a serious replacement for Windows in the current state is preposterous.

Linux distributions such as Ubuntu and Linux Mint are far more serious alternatives to Windows, currently than ReactOS is. Even FreeDOS is a more serious alternative to Windows than ReactOS.

I think I understand it now, it was a generic comment while I interpreted it in the context of the thread. Sorry Daryl!
