Ubuntu Invites Windows 7 Users With Linux Switch Guides

Recommended Posts

Canonical today published the first part of a tutorial series designed to help Windows 7 users migrate to Ubuntu Linux after Microsoft's decade-old OS reached end of support this month and stopped receiving security and bug fixes.

"We will provide a series of detailed, step-by-step tutorials that should help less tech-savvy Windows 7 users migrate from their old operating system to Ubuntu," Canonical developer advocate Igor Ljubuncic said.

Today's post covers the steps before the actual migration and the data backup stage, and it will be followed by other tutorials detailing the installation steps as well as the post-install configuration and desktop environment setup process.

While Windows 7 refugees also have the option to upgrade to Windows 10 or to buy a new computer with an operating system under active support such as macOS or Windows 10, Canonical would gladly have them switch to its free Ubuntu Linux distribution.
