A path to Linux

Doghouse – Expanding the Base

Article from Issue 269/2023

Linux can be a great new option for users from Windows XP owners to students with a range of interests.

It is not often that I write about our work at the Linux Professional Institute (LPI, lpi.org), but there are a couple of projects spearheaded by LPI that I think are worthy of note.

The first project is Upgrade to Linux (upgradetolinux.com), which was originally focused on Microsoft Windows users who will be unable to upgrade to Windows 11. Either because they need more RAM or another graphics card, or they are missing the proper TPM module, these Windows users will have to upgrade their hardware or (in some cases) buy an entirely new system. This particularly impacts institutional owners such as schools, governments, and large enterprises who tend to buy "economy" systems that have smaller amounts of RAM or less expensive graphics cards – which run earlier Windows systems but will not meet the requirements to run Windows 11.

It is not only hardware that Windows 11 will abandon. There are software features of Windows 10 that will not make it to Windows 11.
