Linux is not an option

Linux is not an option: "The vast majority of PCs spend their entire lives unopened and most of them – the home boxes, anyway - still run the operating system and apps that were installed when it was new. Normal people don't swap motherboards, processors and graphics cards. Normal people don't add extra RAM. Normal people don't upgrade hard disks. For them, a PC is a consumer item like a TV or DVD player – they use it until it breaks then throw it away and replace it with a new one."

Exactly. Appliances. You really don't care much about the inner workings of your toaster.

BTW: HAPPY New year to all. I do have a holiday saga to relate, but I'd rather wait until it is finished :)
