    I hate computers too. My home PC let out it's magic smoke yesterday. Blasted SFF* thing too, so I can't just swap in any of the PSUs that I've got kicking around!

    We're not bug fixers; if we had access to the code, we might be able to do something about the problems. That's a big plus with Linux; if you find a bug and you're clever enough you can fix it. It has been my experience, that with M$ we're just re-installers and it has been that way since the days of Win95. I've yet to have a Linux problem that I can't mend, but there are plenty with Windows that you either have to live with or just start again.

    I just dragged my brother into the mordern age.. replaced his win 2000 box for an xp box... Only did it now as he's gone and got that new fangled thing called boradband (had too as his old "dial up" isp closed its service down). Oh and made him bin his ball mouse as well - I'd gotten tired of cleaning the ack off the rollers to use it.

    When the OP mentioned issues with his tomtom - it got me thinking, as my win 7 box wont play nice with my go live and bricks it - so I have to dust off the ol xp lappy to update the gps.

    Don't let that stop you. Last time one of them went on me I left an ATX PSU sitting outside the case for six months.

    We have house apes. They'd trash it in no time. Might get us going though...
