I'm converting Mom's old Gateway desktop PC...well, my uncle's PC, circa 2005...to Linux.
I tried downloading Avast to get rid of the bugs first, but there were too many errors; it's been without anti-viral protection for years. So I went to the Ubuntu website and downloaded the OS. Now I'm burning the OS. I've saved all the files I care about, so next I'll be wiping the drives clean and installing Ubuntu as the operating system.

I think Mum will be pleased with the results. I've been reading up on Ubuntu and it looks snazzy.

EDIT: It appears to have failed. I conclude that the computer I tried it on is a consummate piece of shit. or I just simply have no clue what I'm doing and fucked something major up that I don't know about. I'm tired now. maybe I'll look at it later. at least I have a Ubuntu disc now that appears to function properly.
