She'd been running Win2K on that box for several years.  It required the 
same almost constant maintenance (Scandisk, defrag, anti-virus and so 
on) that all Windows boxes needed.  Then, she tried an Ubuntu LiveCD and 
decided to try it as dual boot after only five minutes.  It's been years 
since she booted Windows, as she has a laptop with XP for the few times 
she needs it.  For the most part, Ubuntu Just Works.
