Funny that you should mention that.  I provide managed Ubuntu desktops 
(We refer to them as kiosks) to hotels for the business center.  (They 
just work)  In one hotel, the manager ordered one for the back office 
people to look up food, and things to do...  We were talking about 
future stuff and I mentioned the word Linux.  The manager says "Oh, I 
hate Linux."  Really?  Do you have Tivo?  And you know those two 
desktops you like so much?  Linux.  "Really?  But they have the 
Internet, and they are so easy...  I thought Linux was hard..."
