I'll be 59 this month.  I run 6 linux (Fedora Core 1).  Both my 
workstation and laptop run the same.  My 4 yr old daughter's PC also 
runs Fedora.  I founded the Pikes Peak Linus Users Group (PPLUG.ORG) and 
work exclusively in open source solutions including two projects with 
the State of Colorado.  What else...  well I could go on about myself.  
But to sum up my position, having come from a Microsoft Developers 
environment, my experience says that Linux is far easier to install and 
manage, and is far more reliable than any OS from the beast. </2-cents>
