The thing was that last January, my computer took and broke down in an interesting way; on boot the screen kept being blank, and the computer was totally inresponsive. I had got this thing on the spring of 2007 also when I took it to be fixed, and the mainboard had to be switched and what else.
So the computer was, shortly said, a wreck, and I was forced to get a new one. Having spent all of the confirmation money I had got (and some other I had) to get the new computer, I was finally back "on my feet". The only little thing on the computer was that it had Windows Vista.
I was disgusted of the sight that it had Vista, and it didn't take more than a couple of days for that for me to go insane of it and look to get Linux back, but what happened was that the old computer had been working for a year with Windows on it, then I had switched and it didn't last more than a half a year before it first broke down, so I did sort of fear of putting Linux on it, "in case it'd cause something happen to it". Of course when I had that, I did ask a couple of people and I constantly got the response that "Linux can't break your BIOS" which I did know but still had "afraid" of it. However, it didn't really take more than a couple of weeks for me to have enough of it and put Kubuntu on it once more.
Here I am now, on my current Debian testing system, with a trauma of what the breakdowns had done in the past. (Of course I am embarrassed of those idiotic "fears" of mine back then and I wouldn't really want to discuss them further. )
