    I can vouch for this. It took me all of 4 minutes to do the whole switch/demotion. I see no difference, and my laptop shows the same level of deference, even though I'm no longer it's admin ;)

    Considering the way I use Windows, I'm pretty sure I could a demoted account. I think I will have to do that, just to be on the safer side.

    Evidently I can't keep up. Missed this one too. For now, you're in the clear. However, your due date is approaching. W7 won't last forever. You might want to give honest and serious thought about moving your system to W10. You can still do so legally, and for free. It's just not advertised. They want to make money after all... :)

    Sadly, the hardware isn't modern enough…hey, do I really need all those pesky drivers? <G>

    How old is this system? I am running W10 on 2007 and 2008 model year computers. Unless it has some obscure component in it, it would likely run W10.

    All good, until your distro of choice also chokes on necessary drivers. A titch easier to find drivers for windows. ;)

    Won't say it can't happen, but have had no problems with Ubuntu 16.04 0n a Thinkpad X230. :vbwink:

    It all worked beautifully. Running on a user account now. Thanks HC and Jig (and Raspy for early testing). Is this place great or what? :thumbsup:

    That's a mighty fine bit of computational hardware you have there. I do not doubt the ability of Lenovo / Thinkpads. :)
