Dont Preach Linux. Just Mention it

Filed under
Linux

A lot of Linux users especially the ones who are newly finding their feet and have become recent converts of Linux get far too enthusiastic about the joys and benefits they experience after they have converted to Linux. They get excited and try to convert as many people as possible to their favourite OS.

These people just get far too excited and end up trying to force people to Linux. They preach about Linux and keep on bashing Windows. They allege Windows users to be “Sheep” and refer to Microsoft as “M$” and Windows as “Window$” or “Winblows” or “Windoze”.

Unfortunately they do not realize that people dislike to be preached upon. Most people have spent their entire lives using Windows and they have gained productivity using that operating system. Make no mistake, they actually like Windows, and seeing that their current OS being bashed by some unknown strangers does not give a right impression about the new community.

People desist change and change in OS is honestly a big change.

Bad habbits

Sorry, been referring to M$ as M$ for years as people seem recognize what I am talking about and it's quicker to type.

As for preaching I've given up with that and just show, look what your laptop can do, look what mine can do (compiz fusion and alike). It gets people more interested than me talking about it Smile
