My 77 year old mother did it before I had a chance to tell her it was
impossible and that in any case grandmothers simply do not do such
thing with computers home made from scabbed bits lying around the
house and bought from Dodgey Brothers at the Computer Fair.

She keeps removing and reinstalling the OSes and I am not too sure
what the current configuration is - XP plus Ubuntu 8.04, or Vista and
Ubuntu.  I keep telling her to get rid of the MS stuff or do the VM
thing, but she just mumbles something about old dogs and new tricks...
