    Huh??? I only use laptops, and no one I know even has a desktop. I don't think it is that bad. I had a chance to try Linux on a whole bunch of laptops this past weekend because the guy from the repair store broke mine and let me to pick one from the store to use until mine get fixed and Ubuntu worked out of the box for most (yeah except for the hp laptops which didn't have a bios option to boot from external devices). These are ~ 3 years old.

    I am wondering which 30 something who live on their own in a rented place would own a desktop. Don't tell me you have to be married and own your home in order to use Linux, those are probably the only people who have desktops nowadays

    Hi and thanks for posting

    Indeed, it has two!

    I didn't touch it again. Unless someone will bring a new idea, I have nothing left to try, I'm afraid
