I guess that's the right spelling. Anyway, I at long last am the proud possessor of a brand spankin' new (I hope) computer, a Lenovo from Walmart. Compared to the crimebook, I guess it's pretty tricked out, specs and all. I have fortunately been able to connect the cheapish plastic wireless mouse (also walmart) and get it to work. All it needed was a new AAA, the other being ok. It's still not that great but better than trying to deal with that sucky trackpad. Now I have it on wifi but there is a little problem. Namely, this is definitely a windows computer, for now. As soon as I can download Linux, that should cease to be a concern. Meanwhile, I am being asked to sign in or create an account. I DO NOT HAVE and DO NOT WANT a Microsoft account. How do I get around this or, barring, that, maybe set up the thing only to delete it asap?
