We kept the upgrade path open for 1.0 for a full year. It was removed roughly a week ago.
Please note that 1.0 is *enormously* out of date. Since then we have had 1.1, 1.2, 1.2.1, and right now as of today, switched to rolling release, 2017.01.01.0.

As your system wasn't upgraded for over a year, it is completely insecure. I would highly advise reinstalling with the latest ISO, either Budgie, or MATE, of your choosing.

Installing the Budgie ISO will give you the most updated and complete experience.

Okay, I did as you suggested and downloaded and installed the Budgie ISO. One weird thing the installer chose which partition to install.to. Usually I have a choice but the installer wouldn't let me chose the partition with the older Solus distro on it. Other than that it was very fast and no problems. I do have a wide arrangement of Windows 10, Windows 7 and about 15 other distros installed on 3 different drives. I'm 77 years old and have been playing with Linux since 2005.
So i have a lot of time on my hands. While I'm here I was wondering how to change fonts and size.
Looked but not easy to find. Thanks for your fast reply.

Fonts is simple, just hit "Win+A" (or the icon in the top right of the panel) to open Raven. There is a little cog icon in the right of this sidebar (Raven) - and in the settings you'll see font configuration.

Thanks for that. I would have a hard time finding it. Happy New Year. :D

I think the Raven font section could do with a global scaling factor the same as you get with the gnome tweak tool in the software section to change all of the Fonts at once.
