If you are wondering what you can do to keep youngsters busy during this extended vacay, how about working with them to learn #Linux, an OpenSource [free] operating system with lots of other awesome free software for kids AND their parents for personal and professional growth. /1
Linux is not a single system, but a host of other "flavors" built upon the original Linux kernel. Two of the most popular for "newbies" has to be @Ubuntu and @Linux_Mint. I use both systems. In fact, today I'm configuring a new generation AMD4 computer w/ a Ryzen processor. /2
If you feel you absolutely must have #Windows, Linux will help you create a dual system. If you only need the software, then #Wine is a free software package that you can use to run Windows software on a Linux platform. /3
If you require the full Windows operating system, this, too, can be handled by Linux. Just install a program called #VirtualBox and you can create as many operating systems as you like for either business, pleasure or just so you/family can learn more about cpu's & computing. /4
Last point. Linux operating systems are more secure and protect your digital privacy far better than Windows. The look of the two operating systems mentioned here is similar to Windows, which is why they have been adopted by millions. Oh, did I say they are FREE! /5
