Microsoft Microsoft surprised many of the attendees at its annual worldwide partner show here this weekend by allowing a third party to present a "hands-on lab" that allowed attendees to play with a range of Linux desktop software. Is Microsoft toning down on its anti-Linux campaign?

Linux is more user friendly than ever. People can argue that Windows/OS X are better, maybe they are right, but that is not the point.

You don't know how correct you are up to here

The point is that if today you can not set your linux box to play music in whatever distribution, I do not think Linux is for you.

But here is where you strayed away. Users like that should only have one friend that recomends them distro and that he sets up some friendly repository. Believe me. I've got about 30 completely clueless friends (beside other who know how) all avid linux users. The only thing they know is that they need to set one rpm and afterwards everything works (They just need to ask me which software is used for some purpose, all matter of few words and nothing else). And not even one has looked back so far.

Not trying to attack anybody, but if some third class user like me can do it, anybody can do it.

Exactly
