Thank YOU, Mr. Wallen, for your article.
Although I know, this does not belong here, just a word.
I have been trying (STRUGGLING) to move away from MS and get friendly
with Linux for 7-8 years now!
So far with little success. Yet, I still keep trying.
many thanks jack, :-)
I'm not an expert, I start to use linux, basically opensuse, in 2000,
and I agree with thomas, my son, my sister, my nephews uses linux, but,
if I didn't install it and configure it and solved the problems that
rised up and sometimes continues to pop up, they never started to use
linux. too complicate... :-)
To quote from your article:
"Each of these distributions ... are ideal for users seeking an
alternative to Windows. ... They are user-friendly and will get the job
That is definitely NOT my experience.
Maybe the statement (and Linux) is meant for computer specialists. I am
not one of those.
Whenever I ask my (what must sound to the computer experts) stupid
questions, I get in every of the many friendly communities the advice:
"If you don't know s**t about computers, you should not dare go near the
damn thing (=Linux)."
My experience is, that Linux is making the transition VERY difficult for
non-experts, ordinary mortal men, that "just"
want to work with the computer - without knowing about computer science,
software design, programming techniques etc.
But I am probably boring you.
Sorry for that.
