Linux has moved away from geekdom

Filed under

Linux has made some very big improvements over the past few years and I have always said that it is ready for everyone to use, if they can only get out of the proprietary mindset.

I have myself supplied several anecdotes of people who have found Linux to be better than windows. People who are your average run of the mill computer user. People who call you to ask where they saved their file. These sort of people have used Linux and stated that they find it a better operating system.

But just me standing on the soap box is not enough. We need to have others contributing their stories of penguin power so I am not just a tree falling in the woods with no one to hear. Well, a friend from the land of fog and rain has blessed me with just such a story and given me permission to use it.
