Re: Linux this and Linux that
Nope, point not missed:
"Back in November 2013 I therefore tried to figure out how to extend the life of my own Netbook."
(reports that Win8 didn't work)
"That Netbook's been gathering dust since that 2013 story, but a few weeks back I found myself in need of a spare computer to serve as a data mule carrying data to the cloud."
(so put Win10 on it)
Silly fellow, if he'd extended it's life with a Linux, like us smug gits, he could have been using it all that time ;-)
