Re:laptop power for the few

thanks for the tip - I did not know these sites.


you know how I go my laptop? A guy told me that his laptop was "broken" and that he had send it to the shop twice to have it fixed. I asked him whether he could switch it on, he said that yes, he could, but that after it crashed. I asked to see this and he showed me. Sure enough, during the boot sequence frigging Windoze 2000 displayed a memory pagination error. It told him "its your OS", he refused to believe me (he thinks of M$ as the "bleeding edge") and told me that I could have the laptop for "spare parts" as he put it. I took it home, installed GNU/Linux and it worked *perfectly* ever since. In this case I can sincerely say: thank you so much, Micro$oft!<nobr> <wbr></nobr>;-)
