Great advice. thanks very much. Will look at that distro (koora).
Love your comment on support "I can tap the main guy on the shoulder"
:-) Gotta be worth a lot!

And yes, I got them to get a nice new screen, KBD/mouse last year when
the old 'beast' died. She'd inherited a whitebox "full tower" system
and a (parallel port) laser printer for it from a friend some time ago.

The printer died and 'the beast' didn't really have USB, IIRC.
Coulda been prior to Win-Xp, can't recall.

She ended up buying a new, cheap USB inkjet printer and new screen
etc, and I got her the Dell. Suggesting that she should be prepared if
it died and needed replacing. But it hasn't, and I'm glad of that.
