| After having a lot of chats with friends I’s surprised how many of them

| the mom of your friend and mine.

Hidebound blogger tries getting hip with new OS

| This looks like an easy-to-use entry level
| Linux OS. It has a point-and-click environment and many native applications,
| and it also has OpenOffice embedded in it. I switched to OpenOffice a few
| months ago when I gave up on the resource-hogging Microsoft Office, and I
| have never regretted it. Firefox came installed, and I added Thunderbird —
| and after several attempts, finally figured out how to import my settings
| from my other laptop. I’ve even managed to impress my son, who didn’t think
| I’d ever get adventurous enough to defy the corporate control of Microsoft,
| or something. I couldn’t quite make out what he said through his laughter.

The Ubuntu Experiment

,----[ Quote ]
| This isn’t the regular granny-test - this time, we’ll put Ubuntu’s famous
| user-friendliness to the test the right way.
|
| In this experiment, Ubuntu will face Windows, but it’s going to be a fair
| game. This means that I will not customise Ubuntu to make it easier to use -
| no, it will come exactly as-is.
