Deja vu. 10 years later, Microsoft Windows is still completely vulnerable to basic ransomware and viruses. Surely the solution is to stop using Microsoft products?

Windows is littered with endless vulnerabilities that are so regularly exploited that Microsoft is holding a sign saying "why are you still using this?"

Many Linux flavors are easy to install. Why not just try Mint Linux? It's easy to configure, even to dual boot, meaning much less worries for a normal user overall. There are alternatives for most software and it's never been easier to rely on this as your main operating system.
