I think this is because I have a PC, everyone with Macs says they just work. Never mind.
Actually, this error occurs because you have no default mail client installed. PC vs Mac has nothing to do with it.

Jon, once you do get your client working, also notice he gave two different email addresses, so double check which one is the correct one, the second one is missing "the" after the @.

If I bought a new PC, with better specs & faster, do you think this problem would go away? Everyone says you need to update your PC regularly, perhaps mine (about 3 years old, I think) can't do this sort of thing? Or, friends with Macs say, they just don't get "Can't perform operation" or "no default mail client" type of error messages which I get?

Those messages just mean that the Windows machine has not yet been "taught". If you click that link in your browser and get that message it means that your browser (whichever one it is) has not yet been told where to find your email program (whichever one it is). Just go into the settings and tell it where your email program is, and it will work next time.

A Mac does not have that problem because it has much fewer options and they are all more integrated to each other than Windows is.

Which one of them you want to use depends on what you want. Mac just works without much setup. Windows has many more options for everything so for things to work together you need to understand more about how to tell it. Linux has way way more ways of doing everything so of the 3 I would consider it to be the least "back off and I will take care of it for you" operating system.
IMHO

Jon, you could do this with a computer from the 1980s with a modem from the 1950s.

Make yourself a gmail account and rock and roll.

Heehee. Not yet.
Illwinters newer game Conquest of Elysium 3 can run on a Raspberry Pi.
Johan says if there is interest then he might be willing to backport Dominions 3.

If that is what you have, you can run email on it just like anything else. I was able to check my email on mine before I switched over to XBMC. May be able to do it now as well, haven't had time to really explore the plugins.
