How I dumped Windows for Linux - Day 2

,----[ Quote ]
| Having got the majority of my hardware to work successfully in Ubuntu Linux
| in my previous post, it was time to find out how the OS faired with some
| everyday productivity tasks. Would I miss using Windows? I'd argue that this
| is the main thing holding most people back from sampling Linux.

You Can Hack An OS But You Can't Hack People - part 7: Left Standing at the
Altar

,----[ Quote ]
| Take this away with you: The story of the OS wars is just as much about
| people as it is about programming. Humans haven't had more than 30 years to
| deal with computers on an everyday basis. Computer systems continue to evolve
| at a dizzying pace. But humans will evolve only at a constant rate.
| Specifically, the attitudes and mindsets that humans have towards computers
| is something that we cannot affect. We have to patiently put the computers
| out there and let the people poke and prod at them until they get used to
| them.
|
| If most of the Linux community gets its way, Linux will gain users. If Linux
| is to gain significant users, they have to come from Windows. So - what are
| we to do with them?
