Hi All,

here is nice comment from this page :

@camerageek: 'I'll believe that Linux is "ready for the desktop" when I
can walk into the local store and get to choose between boxes of popular
software titles that differ only by whether the label reads "For
Windows" or "For Linux".'

So, you'll believe that a *free* operating system with tens of thousands
of *free* applications that can be installed at the click of a mouse is
"ready" when you're forced to go into a local store, choose from a
hundred or so applications, pay big bucks, take a *box* home, and shove
a CD into your computer - just like your dad did in the 1990's?

May I recommend http://www.ubuntu.com, and welcome to the 21st century,
my friend.
