So this bloke gave me a computer with the note that I should fix it..

Well the main problem turned out to be that it ran Windows, I asked what he used it for and it was mainly mail and browsing - so now the machine is upgraded and runs a specially configured Breezy.

I wonder if he will even notice that I installed something that wasn't Windows on it.

that's very cunning! (but just tell the poor guy in case he should try to update his outlook!)

just the same when people buy a new PC they don't notice there's windows on it.... well, but they do pay for it!

no grudge against Bill, but people should know they can choose.
