Customer Question
I bought an Acer Aspire...
I bought an Acer Aspire Revo R3610. I do like it but cant use it for Skype or Spotify as I do not understand what to do I just keep going round in circles. I thought it was Windows that I had. In fact it is Linpus Linux (gulp!) is it possible to download Windows 7 or Vista or XP even? I have knowledge of Windows and how they work but this one has me baffled completely please help. Ray

Hi JACUSTOMER-t2s5ffq- ,

 

Welcome to Just Answer.

 

You need to purchase Windows 7 or Vista or XP because these are not open source these all are license software. So you need to purchase these operating system.

 

And if you want to download skype for Linux.

 

Then try to download from the below link:

 

http://www.skype.com/intl/en/get-skype/on-your-computer/linux/

 

Need any help then let me know.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
