Thumbs up Thanks

Yesterday, I was listening to an old Chess Griffin podcast
when he had a segment w/ a Linux Questions rep., talking about VM -black box.
I tried it and it works.
I couldn't help but think that somebody finally gets it-that a community should welcome everybody - even the very computer illiterates,like myself.
Now ,instead of loading Ubuntu on a obsolete laptop,that I had laying around and stuck within the limitations of this old machine ,now I snuck in to my wife new vista machine and run linux the way it should be run.

This ease of going Linux will soon get it into the mainstream ,and force competition ,which will benefit the user.

Again ,thank you ,and happy holidays.

Arthur Neves

P.S , LQ is great ,the site about linux,i have been looking for .
