Re: [K12OSN] Scary article from Russia (w/o love)



I have put Ubuntu on my cousins computer and she has trouble finding
the on/off switch and has had no trouble reading her e-mail and
writing correspondence.

my wife's laptop also has Ubuntu on it and while she works on Windows
at work she switches back and forth with no problem and  she is of the
"Turn it on it better work" school.

this guy has a few points but they are of the IT type not the end
user.

I do have to acknowledge there are still two areas where Linux is weak

. specialized software for different industries, CAD etc.

. games
