I'm not sure Ubuntu is disruptive *enough*. Admittedly,
if Ubuntu can land a few good deals with OEMs/resellers,
it might start the ball rolling. From what little I've
fiddled with it (and it's *very* little), Ubuntu's a very
nice distro -- if one doesn't mind a tasteful brown desktop.
But that's changeable, with a little work.
Is it cheaper to learn Linux, or to hire someone
to fix your Windows problems?
