Dragons or Windmills...? Not Easy To Tell Sometimes

,----[ Quote ]
| The youngest of the sons spoke perfect English however he was barely 11. He
| asked me point-blank:
|
| "Why is this Linux system better than Windows?" He was concerned there were
| no games.
|
| I began explaining it to the boy and a teenage young man stepped into the
| conversation. He nodded as I spoke so I knew he was understanding every word.
| I got to the point right then that I knew would tell me the answer.
|
| Dragons or Windmills?
|
| See...when you finally get to the point where it has to be explained..."Linux
| is not windows and you have to learn a new way of thinking when you use
| it"...

| His name is Ken Starks and many only know him as "helios". Ken has a popular
| blog and a cause he has given much for. As a Linux advocate, Ken has not only
| spread the word across the nation and the world about Linux, he has taken on
| the task of giving poor kids computers. He calls it by the corny name of
| Komputers4Kids but it doesn't matter how corny the name sounds, it is what he
| does that makes the difference. Ken has made a difference in the lives of
| over a hundred kids in the past year.

Linux Is for Kids

| My brother doesn’t know that I’m installing OpenSuSE 10.3 on his daughters’
| PC. I honestly don’t think he will mind once he sees all of the cool
| applications and games on it. Hell, he’ll probably want to use it himself.
| I’ll tell the girls not to let him use it, because it’s the kids’ computer,
| not for adults. * *
