This bit:-

"True to form when I'm too stupid to figure out how to do something in five 
minutes, I phone an expert.

Geek Squad, [...]"

came to me as a surprise, I would have expected Linux to be outside the Geek 
Squad comfort zone.  Perhaps the opening negotiations in email were written 
as "I'm from the BBC and I'm trying to do this." by  Gary Parkinson, but were 
read as "This guy's from the BBC and he will publicise Geek Squad!", by 
the 'Agent'.  Maybe this encouraged Geek Squad to bend over 
backawar^h^h^Hlift a few fingers to help the guy.

Maybe I'm being unfair over this, maybe Geek Squad should be listed by Ubuntu 
as a full support resource?  Does anyone know what the Geek Squad official 
position is on Linux?

Gotta go, things to be, people to do, and stuff to, err, stuff.
