Life's hard. There's only one way to learn and that's by
experience. My kids know what I think of MS SW. My oldest daughter
doesn't care. My 2nd daughter pleaded with me to install Linux for her
a few years ago. She's never looked back. My youngest daughter is the
one I gave the phone to. She's only used Windows at school and Linux
at home but I feel never really appreciated why I loathe MS SW so
much. She does now. :-)
