And you regularly have to check your memories? I don't think I ever did. But
depending on the utility, yes, maybe.

This one seems really ridiculous to me. how is that person supposed to work on
Windows if no software is installed? You don't need "a clue about Linux" to
use the "start button", both Gnome's and KDE's are very similar to Windows',
and look for the program you need.
If you mean someone repairing the machine, they would be suposed to be
professionals, no? Otherwise this boils down to "allways pay a license to
Microsoft so that Microsoft certified It guys can repair your computer".
