This is what my daughter has to say about my home computers:
Papa, ever since you made the computer a laptop, it misbehaves and crashes. Please make it a computer again!
Read computer = Ubuntu and laptop = Windows. My desktop ran Ubuntu for a long time until I installed Win7 on it. My laptop always had WinXP as shipped by the manufacturer. My daughter prefers Ubuntu to Windows, looks like I am raising a Linux fangirl 🙂
