There is one better way.  Find someone with a virus infected Windows PC, 
tell them you can fix it, and install your favorite Linux distro with 
ClamAV.  Tell them the virus was Windows, not to install any Microsoft 
or AOL software, and that their virus problem is permanently fixed.

If you want to go the extra mile, convert all Microsoft proprietary 
files into PostScript or OpenDocument format so they can use all their 
old data in Linux.
