Wow, looks like there certainly is some interest there.  Not sure if 
any of you folks remember but I was holding a Children In Need event in 
South Devon last weekend.  Although it could have done with a bit more 
planning and we didn't get that many visitors we did manage to raise 
£54 and managed to get 5 people on to Ubuntu, 4 of which are solely on 
Ubuntu and one who is dual booting with XP Home as his printer/scanner 
combo machine (Lexmark X1270)and USB ADSL modem (AOL USB modem) don't 
work under Ubuntu but the guy said he would get a wireless router and 
just use Windows for printing.  He also said that he would install 
Ubuntu on another PC for his kids.
