Open SuSE

Posted 03-31-2016 at 12:22 PM by shsmith

Posted 03-30-2016 at 04:04 PM by shsmith

So, someone showed up at my house this morning with a laptop they had dug out of the trash (why are they always in the trash?) and asked me if I could use it. It is a Dell (why are they always Dell?) Latitude D620. Missing the power supply (what's new) and is still running windows xp. I used another power supply to get it booted and took a look at it. All personal files had been removed from it. What they left were the annoying browser bars (a lot of them) and viruses(hundreds!!). It has a couple...
