>A few years ago
>Dad: Son, the computer is broken again. It's probably something you did, you need to fix it now.
>It's another virus
>I tell him there's no way to fix the computer without installing Linux
>Assure him all his software will run
>Fix up the hardware, clean the thing out
>Install YLMFOS, xp clone
>Get wine set up
>Install all his Windows software
>Tweak the whole thing to basically look identical to his old xp machine with all his files and everything restored
>Dad uses computer for a week, no complaints, only had to explain something once, he literally just clicks desktop shortcuts which he can't accidentally delete because I made it impossible
>I come home one day to find him sitting in the dining room on a new laptop, it's an over priced piece of plastic chink shit from "PC World."
>Dad: Hey son, I've bought a new laptop. I need you to transfer all my files on here and get the wifi working.
>Me: But Dad, what about your computer?
>Dad: Oh you can use that from now on if you want.
>The wifi doesn't work. It's n and my Dads' ancient router is a/b only.
>He then apparently "has" to upgrade the router to something with 5Ghz according to pajeet on the phone from the ISP company.
>The new laptop is such utter shit, the heatsink draws air from under the laptop but it leaves almost zero clearance, so my dad leaves the thing plugged in and running all night sitting on the flat table and the fan burns out.
>Dad takes the thing back and they replace it and also sell him a laptop cooling pad, to keep the thing from burning out again.
>To add to his frustration, it came with Windows 8 and he doesn't understand how it works very well and he complains at me constantly to show him how to do things and I say "Sorry Dad, I only know how to use Linux."
