[News] New Users Cope Just Fine with GNU/Linux

Hash: SHA1

An interview with a 'normal' Linux user

,----[ Quote ]
| PBP: So, would you say Linux is harder to use than Windows, the same, or 
| easier to use? 
| D: I guess it's about the same to me really dude. I mean, its not like it's 
| rocket science. You just like, click on a button and look for whatever it is 
| you want to do. Pretty much the same in both of them as far as I can tell. 
| Although, I can say Lavender doesn't get as harsh   


Terminating a Bad Assumption

,----[ Quote ]
| I know a fellow who, in his mid-60's, has been using Windows for about 3 
| years, and still had no clue what I meant by "double-click," "drag-and-drop," 
| or "select." He already knew about double-clicking, but didn't know what it 
| was called. The notions of "copy-paste" and "clipboard" were totally foreign 
| to him. (So is "don't click that blind link," but that is for someone else to 
| explain. That battle is already being fought by those who actually have 
| something to lose.)      



2009: I am now an official Linux Fan!

,----[ Quote ]
| I have tried the beta version of the distro was free but I love it so much
| that I am about to fork out the $19.99 asking price for the final product. I
| think this is a very small price to pay for such a powerful and secure OS.


Linux s'il vous plaît: French Gendarmie say oui to Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| The Gendarmie Nationale – France’s national police force – has been slowly
| introducing open source software to its 105,000+ policemen since 2005. In
| 2008 the decision was made to use only Ubuntu for all new workstations. A
| year on shows this has been a great success with happy users, a better
| network and cost savings of over seven million euro per year.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
