Well my brother is happily installed in the house sorting through his 700 pictures from travels. So far he seems to of adapted happily to the Linux Desktop with no major complaints. He may have issues when he starts trying to download music from the pay sites though. I shall have to educate him on DRM later.
I'm about an hour from leaving work for my top secret mission* before heading to Whitby. I'm upto date on my work and the only nagging issue is I can't burn any new mix CDs for the journey because my burner is playing up. But who cares, I'll be on holiday!
*not that secret, but I just want to keep it from google
