Is there an alternative to Windows 10 OS with which Surfshark will work?

NOTE. Zorin is free but the full version cost a few bucks and imho is worth it for a newbie. Linuxmint is completely free and also newbie friendly. Another “beginner” distro to look at is Elementry Linux.

sktn77a has a good point. What processor does your HP desktop have? If it is only one or two generations older than the 8th gen. Intel or like-age AMD CPUs, you should be able to do a simple registry hack and then do an upgrade to Win11 without losing your apps and files. I got my 6th gen. Surface tablet on Win11. Google “install windows 11 on unsupported computer” as he said. Worth investigating.

Any Linux system, I use Linux Mint with Surfshark and is fully compatible.

Also Win 10 -
Have been using McAfee for past year; driven crazy by their pop-ups that customer support says cannot be disabled. Suggestions for another antivirus that’s not so anti-customer?

I use McAfee on a Hewlett-Packard PC with Windows 10 and I never get any pop-ups from mcafee. I got an ad blocker that works really good. Are these pop-ups from McAfee are advertisements or they process issues.?

I am a PC gamer, will Linux allow me to game Call of Duty and other online and multi-player games and platforms like X-Box, and PlayStation?

Can You Play Call of Duty on Linux?

In a word, not seamlessly AFAIK.

Linux isn’t really appropriate for everyone’s needs. It more than meets mine, because I am not a gamer.
