One less thing to worry about

So this weekend I converted my parents to using Linux on their desktop. Ubuntu to be exact, and so far things are looking good. It took them a little while to get used to the environment (Where is the start button?) but they seem to manage. For the windows only apps (Actually just one, their book keeping system) I installed windows in Virtualbox and no problems yet.
For years I’ve been worried that their windows installation would crap out and take their data with it, hopefully I can stop worry about that now (Or at least worry less).

Of course, over the years they have amazed me over and over again with the ways they manage to screw up a system, we’ll see if they can bring this one down.
