How do you setup your parent’s computer ?
My parents have never used a computer. Not many left of them in the rich part of the world...
But lately despite of their age they have got really curious and want me to arrange a computer for them so they can learn to use the internet. It think it's kind of cute but it does give me a headache.
I have an old Dell with winXP that's good enough but it desperatly needs "Format c:".
All they need to use is a browser, nothing more.
I'm looking for a super-simple setup, my dream would be: push the on-button, wait 10 sec and click on the only icon there is (256x256px)...
Security is important, but they shouldn't have to do or know anything about it. I do need to setup remote desktop so I can take care of updates and give them live support.
I have left windows for mac myself since a couple of years and as a web-developer tasted some linux.
I'm thinking maybe a stripped XP or investigate if there is some Linux out there.
My goal is simply to give them an dead simple "net desktop" that doesn't take too much time to setup for me as a non-professional but most important, I don't want to spend my spare-time giving them support and maintain their PC.
