I got a call from a man just down the road a while ago saying he was having all sorts of problems with his computer. The man is able to use a computer but not technical at all. In fact he follows the same routine everyday using his computer as access to the world news and contact with his friends and family. He has only ever used Windows, however he was running into various problems with Trojons and the like, so I brought Linux into the converstation and eventually suggested running a Linux distro in place of Windows.
He agreed, a little to my surprise, and I ended up diving in the deep end and installing Linux. I just wanted to share a comment I got back from him today after sometime using the system
everything works very well and I understand your preference. It is indeed superior to, and easier to use than, Windows.
The system I installed was Debian Etch (Gnome)
Thought it would be nice to share this
