    the one on using an old out dated lap top for video security is really interesting , I always believe in repurposing older tech into useful functions , this guy has some really interesting ideas , that dont look too bad

    here is the link to the free software

    I've seen a few of his videos lately and I think this one is pretty cool.

    thank you for that ,I am all about recycling older tech , if it was good once its still good now. just repurposed he has some nice designs for projects I will more than likely build a few as these can be redesigned to fit my needs .

    Bill Gates will not like me saying this but when Win10 made computing hell for older laptops om mine, and major updating takes hours to half a day i am very happy to found Peppermint Linux to give those laptops some extra year of use, and they do it faster and better than with Win10
    updating is a feast in compare with Win10
    so those old laptops are not bad because of older components, they do very well with the right OS
