My computer at work kinda sucks. Its a managed desktop, so I can't do much. It looks like this:
Ubuntu (an easy version of Linux) is also available as a live CD, so I didn't need to risk installing something (which could be a bit naughty). I got a bit scared when this happened...
But then, as if by magic, Ubuntu came alive and I've got a far more pleasant screen:
I had the urge to click 'install' but then, if I did that, it would get rid of managed Windows, and I would have no way of getting it back, except by befriending a sypathetic tech. I'll leave it for now.
