Coping with Windows

This week, I found this article on how to cope with Windows. I've applied most of what it says onto my flatmate's laptop and it makes such a difference! In particular, installing Spybot and running it several times cleaned up so many things that were making the machine a nightmare to work with. Of course, there is always the solution to install Linux instead so I bought CDs of Fedora and Knoppix from Linux Central. At $6.95 and $2.95 a shot respectively, you can't go wrong! Nothing like a good UNIX/Linux variant to have a secure and stable machine. Once I've installed Linux on my machine, it will be time to convince my flatmate that she should install it on her laptop. Now that's a challenge :-)
