A friend, who works in a local cafe, has been having major problems with an Acer laptop running Windows. The description of the problems was, unsurprisingly something to the effect of “It seems to have been infected by dozens of viruses. Using the laptop feels sluggish and annoying when it is not outright unacceptable.”
Friends don’t let their friends use Windows, so I prepared a Fedora 10 installation this afternoon, on a brand new 2.5″ hard disk, to replace the Windows installation:
One of the upcoming days, when we both have some spare time, we will sit down in front of my own laptop, running the new and freshly updated Fedora installation to try Linux for the first time.
Wish me luck in my Linux advocacy attempt. I hope all goes well :-)
