The people you can sell Linux to are those who have watched the Blue
Screen of Death on Windows just too many times. I like the phrase "Get
in touch with your IT representative". This has no meaning to 90% of the
Most of us have gone to Linux because it works better for us. My
last Windows boondogal was trying to get WindowsXP on my laptop. It took
several hours of work and still failed. I got Ubuntu Intrepid loaded and
running fine on that same laptop.
