Joe has an old Vista computer that he uses mostly for syncing an old Windows Phone PDA. Joe would like to take that laptop and put Linux on it with an SSD. Leo says that Linux is a good idea, but that Vista laptop is probably not fast enough to get any great benefit from an SSD. But he should definitely install Linux on it. Leo likes XUbuntu and LUbuntu, which is designed to run on the older hardware.
Joe is also interested in getting a Google Pixel. Leo says to get it with Google Fi. It works great because it crosses networks to whatever is the best coverage in the area he's at. It's also pay as you go with data at $10 per GB.
