- I live seven hours away from my mother, so I can only give limited support.
- She doesn't have broadband and keeping a Windows PC up to date is not a option with 56k.
- I don't have time&knowledge to set up a simple Linux system for her.
- I don't have the money to buy her a used Macintosh.
I addition, I gave my mother two nice presents last year. I gave her a mobile phone and a self made calender with 12 of the best pictures I made in the last 10 years. So I set the bar pretty high.
