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



I use to dual-boot my computer at home becuase if the "fall back" think. . .
several years ago, I gave up installing winders. . . I do everything I need to do on the linux computer at my home.
I have a junk laptop with winders on it that I use if I need winders, but it has a cracked display.

Point is, linux serves my needs. . . good, for cheap.

I resemble that.  For my part, I think Linux is completely ready for the desktop, but I'm not sure that the users are ready and I'm not sure that IT people are as ready as they think they are.  So, my general-purpose advice is this:  Go ahead and pilot Linux on the desktop, with an eye toward full deployment, but make darn sure you have a safety net: a Windows Terminal Server, a Virtual Machine, or a dual-boot handy for anything you might have overlooked.  Working without a net is bad geekery.  It scares users, and it should.  Be humble.  Serve the users that feed you.  Study as hard as you can.  Never, ever attack people, even when they're being "stupid" and "deserve it".
