[ale] On the Hardware Note... (was: Bringing HW to Joe's tomorrow)



I can top that one. :)  My 7 year old daughter use's Linux to send email
and browse the net.  She has her own computer with win95 on it to play
games, but she'll ask me if she can use the 'real' computer when she
wants to do email or browse. :)  I'm teaching her right..
