Here’s a video of a parent who overhauled his daughter’s PC spending $130 on new software. He found the daughter had posted disrespectful notes on FaceBook. The next day he fixed the PC finally with a .45 ACP. While I think this is over the top, it shows attitude applied to that other OS. I would have recommended blocking proxies and facebook. It’s easy with Debian GNU/Linux, Squid and DansGuardian. That would have retained the device for useful educational purposes and the ammunition for practice although it might not have been as satisfying to the frustrated parent. (Apologies for the smoking in this video. I abhor smoking.)

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
