Before we could walk, he started to yell at Shaun, and when Shaun tried to give him some ...
... OS was already installed, it was the Russian version and there did not seem any way to switch it to English post installation. We were in and out of several stores before we found one with a suitable model and an enterprising storekeeper who offered to install the English version of the OS (and some other software), for a price of course. Finally Almaty delivered and V is going to think about the city fondly every time he opens his new netbook!
