Short bio: Computer Scientist, FOSS supporter (read more)
Tux Machines (TM)-specific
I was playing with Ubuntu 11.04 the other day and I fell in love with Unity. But, when I took it to one of my friends he was pissed off. He did not like it. He uses computer to post his blogs, skype with his family and friends and to do basic stuff.
He is 40 years old and he did not want to waste even 20 seconds in learning a new system just to do the same thing he has been doing for ages. His point was, why should I waste my time in learning this new system when all I want to do is send an email to my dad in Northern Ireland? When he saw that he can't add anything to top meny and move things around the way he used to on his current system, he barked, "I am not free to do anything on this system, where is you fecking freedom which you used to talk about so much?"
