My Brother in Law (who's been on Ubuntu for the last 4 years) finally bought himself a new computer. He wanted one for college.
What did he get? One of those lovely new eeepcs. Nice.
HOWEVER... he's sticking with win7 basic! He likes Ubuntu, but I think he's trying the shiny. Fair enough. Give him a month of viruses and spyware and he'll be back. That's why he had to switch to Ubuntu the first time. But he's gone and spent an extra £100 for MS office and Norton. On a 1GB RAM netbook! He says he's thinking of getting an extra GB of RAM, but he never talked to me before making the buy.
If he wanted games, I'd understand him using windows, but he's bought a netbook...
***edit*** hang on... won't they come on a disc?
