Advocates Are In Dire Need

  • With a large number of outdated and unmaintained Operating Systems still in use as well as Windows XP soon to be joining them now is a great time to tackle these security threats to the internet and migrate these systems to openSUSE 13.1 Evergreen!
  • Many computer owners purchased their first system in the late 1990's and early 2000's they spent a small fortune for these systems and some do not understand the importance of OS updates others do not feel they got their money out of their original investment to warrant a second investment in new hardware or a new high priced OS but many would likely agree to a free migration to openSUSE after learning all of its great benefits.
  • These old systems represent a security threat for all internet users as they can easily be compromised and used to launch attacks against internet infrastructure across the world.
