System Restore

I think this is a good debate in general and I just
thought I will put in my experiences and thoughts.

I have had to re-install or system restore Windows on friends 
and families computers so many times that often I wish they
were using Linux so that process wouldn't be so painful and

I have been using Linux myself for a couple years and won't
go back to Windows, but what I really like about Linux now
is that everything works so much quicker and mostly out of the
box and I don't have to configure absolutely everything to get
it to work right.

I don't think that Linux is too far from being able to be used
by the masses and this may be a small part of what Ubuntu
is all about "humanity to others". 

The nice thing about Linux that will never change is that there
can be versions of it that are meant for everyone and versions
that are meant for people who are technical and really know
what they are doing and know how to be efficient with the
command line etc...

The last point is that ideas should not be discouraged so much
if someone wants system restore and someone else is willing
to write it, all the more power to them. You don't have to install
it if you don't want to.

Have a great weekend
