Shabaz Sharif's e-Youth initiative free laptop scheme is crap! Lets see why?

That's why:

Operating System
Ubuntu 11.10 desktop i386 32bit Linux

Mr. Nawaz Sharif said in his speech today in Punjab University "laptop par buree chazay naheen dakhanee, Aap wada karain" [promise me that you will not watch bad things on laptop] - obviously he was referring to pornography, which was very insightful of him, a show of concern by an elder.

Okay! Some features are impressive.
Like 320 GB of hard drive space. You can watch a lot of movies now.
