So a few days ago, my neighboor who isn't a very technical person (at
all) tells me "Gilles, could you come over and clean up the kids PCs?
It's riddled with viruses and addware, and very slow."
I answer "Sure... I can't re-install a full Windows - I don't have
copies - but I can put Linux on it... that will clean it up."
She asks if it will be hard to use... I say no.
So I come over. Boot up the live CD, check that main features work and
do an install...
After all updates and installing various stuff from Medibuntu I do a
demo for her. Here is part of the dialog that happened then :
H: Wow! That's fast!
H: I mean MUCH faster that Windows!
M: Yes... But I told you that before.
H: Do I need an antivirus?
H: And... can I do word processing?
H: Can I play DVDs?
H: Can I play games?
H: Can I play?
H: Can I...
You get the picture.
aMSN, aMule, OpenOffice, VLC (and dvdcss), Flash (non free), Java6,
Skype, and she had all she needed!
I love it when people like what they get with Ubuntu!
