But you know that government solutions are "one size fits all", so they'll try to figure out a way such that you are required to install software that will only run on a Windows system... Wink

Like compulsory antivirus ...

Oh the poor days of 2005 where my only DIY computer box had a bad controller board an would only work about 4 mins, then started to corrupt HD. Only had a DVD burner and needed a solution. Thanks to BK and puppylinux v1.01beta (.098) I was able to play DVDs and run from memory surfing the web on dial-up.

Cool this is what I wrote about that our version of PCworld.com wrote about
some 6 months ago. typically of me I failed to remember to make a bookmark
but you have found the correct way to link to it.

As I get it here in Sweden too they trusted that it would be MsWin version
and that they would not help us using Linux. They would not care about us
and most likely never allow us to get access.

I hope I am wrong but that is my honest reading of the Swedish text.
