lindows


okay, here is something for us newbies. redhat and slackware and mandrake are all overwhelming and huge, though we all adore the challenge. but if were wanting to get others to use linux, but they are all too idiotic to try. they could use stuff like windows, i know that most of it is just puffed up linux, but it helps. ive seen many people rant and rave about user compatability, but you know, let the dimwits have their fun with linux. laters

I don't get your post, are you wanting to get newbies to use Windows or Lindows?

Also, lets try to refrain from calling newcomers to Linux and the possibility of them using Lindows as "dimwits". Thanks.

We shouldn't make fun of them, only encourage them and expand their knowledge as there is more choices in using Linux than Lindows or the such....

okay, maybe i didnt get the point across right. im not calling the regular newbies dimwits. i was in a rush to get out the door when i wrote this, sorry. what i meant to get at was lindows is a good helper for that bridge. play around with lindows for awhile to get used to the filesystem and all that kind of stuff before getting to the heavy hitters like redhat or linux. lindows isnt really that good, but it could defenitaly be considered a good bridge. an example of the dimwits could be the parent or younger sibling that doesnt know much and your helping with the transition. eh well, good luck
