Ubuntu at Toyota

I’m waiting a few hours at the Thompson Toyota, my Prius is getting some
minor work done to it to pass state inspection, it still takes a few
hours. They have a wireless connection to the Internet, but even though
last time I connected without problems this time my PII Debian system
was not happy. So I checked out the bank of beat up Gateways with
vagabond keyboards in the corner. I wiggle the mouse, and up pops the
Ubuntu Heron! Wow! I can tell from the scribbled out tag that these are
likely hand me downs from Thompson Lexus, I bet them bastards over there
now have Vista. I expect that they just didn’t want to pay for Licenses,
but I can do some work!

The neat part is that other people are actually using them. By default
there are no icons on the desktop, so some people can’t find Firefox
right away, but they find it. The card games seem most popular thought,
at least today. I guess Ubuntu really is a user friendly system.
