My girlfriend used to be a total technophobe and had some Compaq Duron with Windows XP. She HATED using computers and constant problems with spyware and viruses. Last June I bought her an eMac 1.25Ghz and I knew she loved her Mac but I didn't know the true extent of that until today. I decided to play a trick on her by running a Live CD version of Ubuntu Linux on her eMac and told her I had deleted everything off her computer and had installed Linux instead (I did say that I had backed up her documents though). She quickly rushed down to the computer and saw that Mac OS X Tiger was gone and she immediately turned angry. She started bashing the keyboard as I tried to have her try Firefox (instead of Safari), the GIMP (instead of Photoshop) and Openoffice. I knew I had gone too far when she started to cry so I told her that I was playing a joke, rebooted in Tiger and thankfully was forgiven (with the condition that I get her a chai latte at Starbucks).
