Oh, my! I didn't want to start the WW III with that post... Marcik, cool down. I think nobody wants to insult you.
"How is it that there are any computer owners at all in Poland? It sounds as though any computer would be too expensive."
Well, you can get a PC for about 300£ and pay for it in two-year installments, for example. Of course, some people earn more. I've been lucky so far to be among them but it means changing jobs a lot, driving around and working long hours. If you are, for example, a programmer and you find a good job, you can afford changing your hardware each year. I didn't write to complain, just to give you some other point of view on what "affordable" for people can be. The example was extreme but, unfortunately, true for more than half of folks here.
"Hopefully incomes will start to rise now that Poland is in the EU."
Yeah, for now we've had dramatic rises in food prices because of EU. Optimistic, isn't it? ;)
"How long is it before Poles can work in any country in Europe?"
No problem with going to UK. Many my friends did. But imagine - you leave your home, family and go some foreign place and usually instead of brain work you clean somebody's toilets. I wouldn't and many won't, at least as long as they get twice as much as these 100£.
