Well that's what a so called friend said afterwards. See, my buddy sold a workstation to a "friend". We stipped the OS and cleaned the HD out and sold it to this "friend" for 200 bucks. They called back and said all they were getting was a black screen and would not pay until it was fixed.
The deal was that they bought the computer, a flat screen monitor, keyboard and mouse for 200 bucks. This computer also came with all the cords and a DVD-RW drive. Great deal for 200 bucks. The HD was 40 gig...still a good deal for a work station. Not a super powerhouse but sitll had over 700 megs of ram. A good deal and would have run any operating system.
Well, they whined it it no OS so we drove out to there place and I spent 3 hours putting F10 on it. This was before F11 came out. I even gave them a Mandriva disc if the F10 set-up caused problems.
The F10 was working great. All they had left to do was to set up their e-mail accounts on Kontact. Piece of cake. They wait all summer long to call to complain. They are now demanding a full refund.
We should have just told them to put XP on there.
I never realized how dumb people can get or how lazy they are. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to install a MS OS. Fedora 10 is leagues above XP on every account. They didn't call for help or anything. They just waited 3 months to complain.
Bet you guys never have any of this trouble. I should just buy the computer back for myself. Does anyone want an IBM workstation for a server? 200 bucks plus shipping.
