Re: Would be even better
>>And what pray, would grandma do with a brand new PC, and accompanying blank hard drive when she switches it on? Get real.
And supposing it wasn't "grandma" but someone who wanted to put Ubuntu on there? You don't get to pick whoever you want as the representative person just to make a request look bad. If you'd made an argument about managing extra supply lines you might have had a comment. But just trying to make out that there aren't plenty of people who want a blank machine or don't know what to do with one is silly.
People shouldn't be forced to buy things they don't want to get the things they actually do.
