Now that you've unwrapped and fired up that new Christmas PC (is it your third or fourth?), have I got a project for you: We're going to fix your old PC. Boy, are we gonna fix it. I can almost guarantee you it will run appreciably faster than your new unit. It won't ever get clogged up with spyware. It will never crash. And it will come with all the software you'll ever need, and if you need more, you can download it for free. A nice one-day project.
