Good morning all,
Some advice will be appreciated.
A friend's laptop was stolen, the insurance has offered him the
replacement detailed below.
He uses Ubuntu, therefore does not need the Win 10 installation.
If he asks for a laptop loaded with Ubuntu or with no OS, then perhaps
he can avoid Microsoft licence fees and ask for something else to be
added - but what?
