Releatives And friends

My friends always calling me for formatting and reconfiguring their XP box because is infected with viruses and malwares, so i will go to their house reformat windows and configure it for about an hour and half, after a few days they will call me again with the same problem that s why i when they ask me to format again their PC's i formated it to Ubuntu then when they saw it, they told me that what have you done how can i play my favorite games. then i gave them some notes on how to use linux and what is the benefits " notes that i compose with lots of Ubuntu tweaks and interesting games" so they tried it and after a few weeks i noticed that they are not calling me and when i check my friends their busy configuring their new system and there are happy with it.

    but remember do not force them to migrate to linux,

    follow this simple step go to your friends house and backup his/her files and reformat it to linux, look for his windows installer and hide it under the soil.
