Forgive me, but this could stand to be mentioned at least once a year, 
as a reminder... PC hardware tends to become more useful for most 
technical work if one erases Windows and installs GNU/Linux.

(Nowadays, with GNU/Linux being the technical and server platform, and 
most things being doable in a Web browser or on a phone, Windows is 
mostly useful for two purposes: as a program loader for FPS video games, 
and for secretaries who still like to email around .doc files that only 
work with the latest version of MS Word.)
