Bought today S9. It looks good, but unfortunately there’s M$ XP installed. I have no USB stick, so have to wait till Monday before install something more suitable onto it. And using occasion I decided to investigate what XP is and maybe try to turn it into something usable with Firefox, Strawberry Perl, MinGW and MSYS.

The thing that drove me really crazy was Norton Internet Security that was preinstalled on the netbook. This shit is a real malware and by itself is worse than any virus. Working with Windows isn’t a pleasant experience in general, but Norton seems tries to make it a kind of a torture with all its warnings, ads, toolbars and so on. I don’t understand those idiots who ready to pay money for that yellow beast. Uninstalled.
