"yep, it has finally happened - linux has made it into my family. But not from the source I thought it would (ie: me).My younger and completely techno-illiterate brother had his XP laptop die on him so rather than replace it with a Vista (told him I'd go down there and break it if he bought one) or XP machine he got himself Acer Netbook.
