Don't give me that crap. My parents and my in-laws (all grandparents
now, thank you very much) have had Linux boxes for *years*.
Linux isn't right for the
types, sure, but your average user just wants something that WORKS,
and a properly configured Linux box does that job just fine, and has
at least since KDE became stable and StarOffice became
Unfortunately, I think the only thing that will truely make newer
users happy is a pointy-clicky-don't-make-me-think distribution
(presumably) like Lindows, or the other end of the spectrum
(Gentoo/Slackass^H^H^Hware/*BSD) that forces you to actually
understand what's going on in order to get anything done. Fedora/Red
Hat makes some things deceptively easy, and other things, well, not.
