Oh, I made Windows default, because, mostly I have that machine
to use Windows when I ¨need¨ it, and for other members of the family.
My main machine is Kubuntu, of course.

and wants access to her favorite Linux apps and games again.
Since this computer is for her use while I am working on the other,
she needs access to Linux.
