Noughts & Crosses? [Dec. 6th, 2007|10:24 pm]
The Love Bug
[Tags|, ]

I made a phone call to the USA this evening. The upshot of that phone call is that in early January, with the help of jena, I will be taking delivery of an XO.

I took advantage of their Give One Get One offer, buying 2 laptops in total. One of those laptops will be going to a child in a developing country, and the other will be coming here (via New Hampshire) for me to get my sticky mitts on it. Then, once I’m bored with it, Amy can have it to test out how rugged it actually is!!

Very many thanks to jena for helping out, and a special mention to the birthday girl, almsthvn - still love ya! :o)

Not a problem at all! :) I can't wait to hear all about it once I've re-routed it to you. :)

Aye, I heard about that - they can't stand being left behind, can they? First the Asus EEE PC, now this.

Questions though:

Will Microsoft offer XP under a free licence? I doubt they'll give it away... even Educational licences are paid for.
Will Microsoft XP run on a machine of comparatively low specification? 1GB storage, 433MHz Processor, 512MB RAM? Even Windows 2000 would struggle with that specification!
