I understand that, but a Windows computer cannot be considered "rock
solid", more that it is ubiquitous.  If you were willing to try a
distribution of Linux for your mother, why not try her with a different

All operating systems have their strong and weak points, but my
experience of using Linux over a number of years, is that Linux in
general but Kubuntu in particular has more strong points than weak

If you were to try BSD, it would be very strong, but be a pig to
use....unless that is, of course, you would go the route of trying Mac
