Much of that went right over my head except that you've managed to install Linux on an iPad.

Some techy things I'm pretty clued up on; others I have no idea. For instance I've barely ever used a Microsoft product thus have no clue about Windows or Microsoft's own products (do they still make anything apart from the surface?)

I like Apple products for their simplicity of use and aesthetics. Most of them come with a built in tips app but I find them intuitive. Was my phone worth £1000? Perhaps not, but it is the best phone I've ever owned. Same goes for the iPad - iOs 11 really opened up its possibilities but I tend to stay away from the ultra techy side of things and just enjoy the device.

My MacBook may be a glorified Chromebook for all I use it for: I should really investigate more of what it can do, but I find it fine as is even with just the one USB-C port. I was surprised genuinely the other day when I discovered that it had a 3.5mm headphone jack. I, like many others have moved away to BT head and earphones.

YES,it's loading perfectly....and WITHOUT needing to 'jailbreak' the iPad!
