I am getting excited and worked up with the rest of you about the
impending rush on advertising Ubuntu to get more people to use it, plus
the courses that are being set up, but I seem to remember getting my
little netbook, with Linux Lite on it, that was sold by one of the large
electronics companies on the high street. The guy there said to me, you
know you will bring it back dont you. Everybody else has, they cant
connect to their internet. I heard a lot about Linux computers being
taken back because people couldnt work out how to use them, the shops
didnt even ask what was up in the end, they just credited them. That
was last year.
Has anybody thought about how they are going to make it so that it can
be easier to set the machine up, when its first opened? Plus, has
anybody thought, who and how if there is an increase in Linux users, a
help format is going to be set up, so that people can get immediate
help, if needed, because it will be immediate help that people will
want, not sometime later, but there and then, they wont wait, and its no
good saying, 'those of us who are on these forums and e-mail groups have
other jobs and we do this for nothing, that wont be good enough'. people
wont accept that. You could be doing Ubuntu a world of good, with all
this new advertising and enthusiasm, but you could ruin it for good, if
there is no sufficient help after sales.
Just a thought.
