Great story, thanks. If only others could be convinced of Linux benefits so easily.

I have a couple of recent converts too, one has been using Linux for some time, currently using Mint and was very
impresssed with the size and speed of MX-14.2 - now using it for presentations on his firearms safety courses.

Beautiful!!! I've done several old computers to antiX and MX-14. The people who got them were surprised how fast they can compute. Converts come one at a time.
