yes very true. I usually call ubuntu an open source operating system instead
of free. people have been very swayed about the word FREE immediatly
associating it with no money instead of the freedom of use and distrubution.
Also Ms started in Seattle and people are used to it and immediately discard
linux as a terminal based operating system and that there is no gui at all.
We need to tell people that it looks just like windows. People dont
understand. i find that even people with technical understanding even think
its all a terminal.
