Why can't I activate Windows XP?

Episode 1338 (1:43:05)

Ted from San Diego, CA
Linux Mint

Ted has to install XP every 30 days, even though he bought it. Leo says it's possible that since XP is now "end of life," they may not be activating it anymore. Leo says that it's time for Ted to go to Linux.

Ted also can't install Microsoft Office. He tried to copy the program folder over and it won't work. Leo says it can't work that way. He'll miss important system files. He'll have to reinstall from the program disc.

Leo suggests installing Linux Mint. XUbuntu is another option. Both are free. Then he can use Libre Office, which Leo says is better than Microsoft Office.
