After following @paraga's references to #web3 and then falling down something of a rabbit hole at https://www.freecodecamp.org/news/what-is-web3/ I'm now wondering if Twitter might lead the charge among the titans to decentralise. The fediverse is a good defence against political hacks claiming bias.
It has Windows on it. It doesn't get as far as booting - it skips to network boot at the BIOS. I've re-written the MBR and the boot sector after booting from a Windows USB stick. That's what gave me the idea about Neverware Cloudready (it's an old computer - not worth the effort of doing much else). Very odd that you can see the drive, and there are no problems with it *once booted*. Just during boot, the BIOS doesn't find it *at all*.
My other half works at an infant school (she's "the lady in the office") - one of her co-workers gave her his laptop for me to look at yesterday. It *appears* the HDD controller on the motherboard has started to fail - I can boot into a Linux via a USB stick. Therefore I'm waiting for Amazon to deliver some very low profile USB sticks, and then he's going to get a fresh install of Neverware Cloudready (essentially Chrome OS). I can see this happening a lot in the next few years...
If only I could find a half-decent Linux distro that will run on a PPC G3 iMac without half of the OS being broken :)
