Windows Alternative

A little fed up with having to get my Win XP Pro activated continually !
The reason - as a hobby I mess around with four PC's for personal at home use (must do something when you're 76). My hearing is lousy and I have such a job hearing these Indian people giving me instructions.

I wondered if there was an alternative to Windows or should I load an earlier version that would not require such activations.

Kindest regards Derek Miles.

As suggested by Pamy, one of the Linux versions would be ideal if you enjoy messing around with computers.

Many thanks to both, I have now sent for the CD and going to have a go.

Again my thanks.

Many thanks to you all.
I have ordered a CD and no doubt will require some assistance.
Kindest regards and again Thanks.
