For those of you who would like to try another operating system, don't have the $$ for another machine and don't want to fuss with a dual boot; you may want to have a USB hard drive like the one in the pic. I got the complete case from an Ebay seller and had a hard drive on hand to put inside the case.
To make it work I installed the hard drive into the main slot and installed the OS from the USB stick to the hard drive, when that was done I removed the drive and placed it into the case, went into the settings and added it can boot from the USB.
F12 I can select either drive to work from.

It was just an experiment that worked, I didn't know if an OS on a stand alone drive would even work. I downsized the amount of laptops in use and when I wish to use the Linux Mint 19.1Xfce I don't have to swap out the second drive any more. Because I hardly use Windows7 its hard drive has been removed and put up and the optical drive reinstalled to watch movies.

I get Hulu free with Sprint, I also have another streaming service that has 1000s of channels, all over the world
Jetstream TV, been using it for past couple months, costs me 23.99 I believe

We used to have DirecTV, but switched to Dish TV.
I will NOT watch commercials, and won't configure my life around when a program is supposed to air.

for me, it is worth the price to have a recorder with 1TB of hard drive space.
a lot of the CBS movies have "AutoHopper" which is a commercial skipper.

those that don't get the Fast Forward treatment...
I very rarely ever, watch live TV.... and that is for local Weather when Tornadoes are in the air close by.
