I recently swapped my desktop over to the Linux Mint OS. I'd been running Windows XP, but since that is no longer supported by Microsoft it has major security issues and is getting increasingly clunky. I have Windows 10 on my laptop, but really don't like it, so rather than "upgrading" to that I went the Linux route, and have been very happy with the result. It's all free, is much less heavy on resources than Windows (so you may not need to upgrade your computer - mine is 10 years old), and has a huge range of software that can do pretty much everything the Windows software can do (did I mention it's all free?). There are Linux equivalents of Word, Photoshop, Excel, iTunes etc (though haven't managed to access the iTunes store), and yes, the BirdingNZ smart feeds work fine on my Firefox browser. Plus software installation and management in Linux is much easier than it used to be. The geeks love to use the terminal window for managing their software, but we less-techy types can manage perfectly well without it.https://linuxmint.com/https://community.linuxmint.com/
