I got a laptop!

But, it's slower than mud. It's a Gateway. I have Windows Vista, but I installed a Windows 10 Theme on it.

Gateway? Vista? Wow... You know you could throw Linux on there and get much better performance. Vista is the worst OS they've ever done.

Yeah. My brother gave it to me, so, I didn't really have a choice. I played Madden on it and it ran sooooooooooo slow. I was even doing H11 to see if that would do anything.

I mean, you do have a choice. Most Linux distros are free. Get Ubuntu or Mint, load it up with Mono and WINE, and play some games.

You're speaking jibberish in my world, WTF does distro mean? Mono? (WINE is a drink)(Just Kidding) WINE? Ubuntu? Mint?

Distro is short for "distribution". Versions of Linux are called distros. Mono is a runtime environment meant to emulate Microsoft .NET Framework on Linux. WINE allows you to run games and programs designed for Windows on Linux. Ubuntu and Linux Mint are versions, or distros, of Linux that are hugely popular.

Feel free to try them in a virtual machine if you want to see if you could like them.

About that going slow, my battery plan was on power-saving mode, but I just put it on high performance.
