Well, she's not resisting.  She's quite happy to use Linux (At least
since I upgraded to GNOME 2.6); but the thing that keeps from using it
full time are the three items I mentioned.  Whenever she wants to do one
of those tasks, she reboots into Windows.  Which of course kills my ssh
So - if I can accomplish those tasks for her, she'll actually switch and
I won't have to do a monthly virus/ad-ware check like I do now.  And I
can free up another 25 GB of hard drive space.
