Once again we are shown Microsoft knows how to fix their operating system, but chooses not to

Posted 12-20-2010 at 02:09 AM by William (Dthdealer) (Whaling the FOSS)

This drives me insane.

If Microsoft can provide a free anti-malware...

Linux Mint on an old machine

I was given an old machine by a friend and I took it to work, where we have very few machines for people to use. It's a drop-in centre with very little money.

I put Windows on it to start with (XP Home) because that's what all our service users are used to. Every day a nag popped up telling us that we had nn days until the system expired and we'd have to register it.

However, there were a number of problems with that, including no support for my Creative soundcard nor the modem, and it did not automount the hard drive partitions other than root, and I did not know how to fix that. So I gave up...
