True. My brother's Windows Vista install was corrupted, so I put
Kubuntu on his laptop for him. You could say that his technical skills
are less-than-good, but I could hand him a Kubuntu disk and he could
probebly install it himself. If I handed him a Debian disk on the other
hand, he would probebly have absolutly no idea what to do. Come to
think of it, Windows XP's installer is probebly the LEAST user-friendly
OS installer that I can think of. Kind of ironic, considering that most
people don't seem to like Linux due to it "not being user-friendly"...
