jbredmound Posted March 31, 2003 Share Posted March 31, 2003 I was just over on the Mozilla topic talking about being homesick. I just immediately miss daily conveniences that I am not going to get (at least, easily) with Moz.Now, Linux...I haven't downloaded it because I haven't been able to find the support that I think I need for it. I have one computer, so if Windows crashes because I do something stupid with Linux, I have a lot to lose. I don't think I have the time, or want to make the time, to fix that.The ole computer does one major thing for me, and that is open up a world of conveniences. Short of curiosity, why would I want to give up all of my Windows-supported conveniences for this brave new world?Point very well taken that Linux is in it's infancy. Until it is able to grow up, the normal user is probably going to avoid it like the plague.The positive is that, as more enterprise moves to open source (and they have plenty of reasons to take that plunge), the growth curve of all of these open source systems should angle upwards sharply.For now, I'm a Windows guy, and, I sustpect, an IE/OE guy, too.
