This is one of those messages which normally starts off
"somebody I know has this problem"; which means of course it really
refers to oneself.
The situation really refers to a friend of my older son's whose parents
them a laptop for University (this young person is going to study in
(as is the norm in Bulgaria) had a friend install PIRATE Windows,
Tom Cobbley and all on the thing.
Morality aside . . .
My son has told this person that they (the parents) are "silly bu**ers"
child off to Germany with a laptop packed to the gills with Pirate
software. I have
offered to scrub the laptop and install a friendly Linux distro with
Uncle Richard Stallman and all.
This person; having grown up in Pirate-software land cannot see that
their might be
risks (legal!!!!) about merrily turning up at a Uni' in German with a
laptop like "that".
Would be grateful for advice.
sincerely, Richmond Mathewson.
