LOL! I am learning about Linux (I used it in the past, and am going back to it). But I had to laugh. Broken laptop (out of warranty of course). So I used Linux to check out the stuff (good news! It uses very little memory!).
So the problem is the stupid memory chip. Bad news? How do you shut down?
Well in windows you go to Start.
IN linux you go to log out!
Same stupidity, different date! LOL
