Me either.

scrabble around for drivers,

There are no Linux drivers.

Unless you're running a server version of Windows.

No need to recompile the kernel,

Here either. But you can if you want/need to.

OriginalGriff wrote:
re-educate Herself,

No need here either because FireFox and Thunderbird work the same as they did in Windows (and Linux Thunderbird even uses our old Windows Thunderbird profiles), and Libre Office lets her do her spreadsheet stuff (and that's the same as Office as well). All I had to do was make her legacy documents available and tell her where they were.

find some way to run applications that have worked faultlessly for years...

You mean the stuff like Visual Studio? Faultlessly? VirtualBox to the rescue.
