I am contemplating getting one for my GF's mother. She has an age old 
Win98 machine which is creaking at the seams.

I told her that the Operating system will be different - but this did 
not vex her, she is more concerned about being able to play Solitaire 
and being able to type up work reports.

Is there a GNU version of Solitaire kicking around?
