Scot Posted March 26, 2003 Share Posted March 26, 2003 I've noticed that among experienced Windows users who try Linux, one of two things usually happens. Either:You install it, play around, admire some things about it, but can't bring yourself to actually use Linux apps with your real data.orYou install it, your admiration turns into a strong feeling of affection, and you spend hours learning its intricacies, finding apps that work well enough for your purposes, start to get acclimated, and pretty soon you're looking to dispose of Windows the way you might training wheels.I will admit to being in the former camp. I have installed Linux at least a dozen times, all different versions and types on a wide variety of PCs. But I can't seem to warm up to it, even though I know that someday I may honestly be pushed to that option by getting fed up with how Microsoft wields Windows.But what's your experience? What Linux distribution are you using? What problems are you having? How are you solving them? Is Linux ready for prime time on the desktop for the average user? What's your opinion? -- Scot Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
