Alternative to Windows XP OS for your Desktop - UBUNTU

For the Last 20 Years of my experiences in Computer and tools related to it, I have came across from the deep Black Screen DOS mode in 1993, The UNIX Platform with multiple pc setting, The welcoming of Win 3.1 Operating System in 1994 (in Odisha), the Grand eye opening launch of Windows 95 in the year 1996 is a major Event.



Now the Windows Platform is all - everywhere you see a Desktop monitor opened. Are you booking your Railway Tickets of Flight Tickets, or Registering your Name on College Admission, Booking Room at Hotel, getting Trained on MS-Word or managing Accounts of your Firm -- Its all on Windows. From Cyber-Cafe to Science City, From railway station to flight Booking, From DTP to Web Designing, From Writing code for a hospital Management System to the Mission Critical Banking Management System , there is every Possibility of 98% Plus Chance of all running under Windows platform.

Now Windows XP Support is Closed, but One can Use it Free via Official Virtual Machine Windows XP provided by Microsoft. Check Out How you can use Free Windows XP- Thanks to a great Guide on http://www.makeuseof.com/ website here.

Still It Needs a Licensing Fess to Run upon. In India its Hard Money to Invest on OS. The Newer Version of Windows i.e WINDOWS 7, Win 8 and Windows 10 all cost even More and are not specifically made for Desktop Only - They are Good and even better for the Work, which requires Both Desktop and Mobile Version. You have to Pay for License, to use them.
