I wouldn't even attempt trying out a LiveBoot in any of our chain-stores here in the UK. PCWorld is a good example
I'll let you know! Im in Italy and I will probably buy something in some Euronics shop

poor sod still looked confused
Was grabbing a USB flash in Staples, and some ink pen cartridges, went to check out and the young'un started to explain Apple Pay and such like I was just some old fart, I said to the young man, son, I have PC Memory older than you.

Recently was at Micro Center, grabbing a HDD for storage, was just talking to one of the floor guys and mentioned Linux, he said he had heard about it but never used it. It is kind of fun being the aliens among the population. ;)

Hi guys
I have an update. I went to that store and asked if I could try to run Linux from my live USB and they refused because they don't want to touch the exposition units. I don't want to get the laptop from a local shop because they usually sell overpriced stuff. I think I'll check some reviews online before buying a model available on that chain
