The **other** option is to "do nothing" and just run the machine to ground
with the last operating system you have in it now.  It's very likely that
it is perfectly adequate to do everything you might need, usually there
continues to be basic upgrades available for awhile, and possibly you
could, if apt doesn't do it, **manually** download your choice of browser
and install it???  Those of us who were/are PPC users have had to suffer
the "loss of the latest offering" for awhile now . . . "stuck" in the past
with 16.04 . . . <sniff> <waaaaahhhhhh> . . . .  The machine might break
down before the OS would become totally useless, etc.  Time is more
valuable than shopping around for another linux distro . . . .  : - 0
