I installed Mandrake Linux on my second computer yesterday. I expected the installation to take a while, but no: it took me only about 45 minutes, 30 minutes of which was spent copying files. It was easier than installing Win98! The results were just great: a working operating system, with several different graphical user interfaces and loads of useful software.

It's still a bit of a mystery how much use I will find for the second computer, because the Linux machine is not networked yet. It also takes a very long time to start up. But if we ever need to use two computers at the same time (say, we both need to do some writing or something like that), I'll have a working computer there ready to be used.
