I have been working on this bug recently:
First of, I have moved my fathers computer, his servers and all the
systems in his house to use Linux. this consists of around 10 systems.
Then I moved onto the Girlfriend, I told her I didn't want windows in my
house, so she now uses Ubuntu Studio (she does alot of music work), then
I sorted out her parents and her 2 brothers, they are now all on Linux
too. Then came the office, it seems most in our office are slowly moving
over to Ubuntu Linux, and I have even got my boss using it on his system
for our conference for demonstrations to our customers.
This consists of around 20 computers in the last, say.... 3 months, it's
not brilliant, but i've lost count of how many times i've ran through
the conversation of:
# "And this is completely free?"
# "yes, completely"
# "and you're sure I won't get into trouble for using it?"
# "100% Sure, its completely free"
I see the problem as people are just not aware that this is completely free.
I am a gamer, as is my brother, and we both use Ubuntu, my Brother plays World of Warcraft alot over Cedega, I play alot of PlaneShift and some Unreal Tournament 2004 (can't wait for the new one) There's plenty of very good Linux native games - Free or not, I don't care about paying £30 for a game, if it works. actually, the fact that games do not work under Linux just saves me money, so i'm not going to complain too much, if game manufacturers made games for Linux, I would be happy to buy them, though I might need a pay rise.....
if every Linux user could "convert" 20 or so people every 3 months, then
we would have the "pyramid" effect and could combat this bug in little
one other note: - My father builds PC's and he's now offering Ubuntu
Linux based systems (he still offers windows as he doesn't want to go
out of business just yet) and this is another step in the right
