Re: [suse-linux-uk-schools] Preinstalled Windows: AARGH! I can't get it off!
If we are going to 'dis' the 'opposition' and bring on board the wider

MS windows on then you were entitled to it IF you wanted it. Perfectly
reasonable if that is what you want.

There's plenty of real stuff to attack so lets gets those sights focussed!
