Linux I volunteer as tech support for a small organization. For years we relied on Ubuntu on our desktops, but the users didn't like it when Ubuntu switched to the Unity interface. This article tells about our search for a replacement and why we decided on Xfce running atop Linux Mint.

In a sense it's very User Friendly. It does exactly what the user wants in a concise and direct way with a minimum of fuss.

The problem is somewhere along the lines "User Friendly" has also come to mean "designed so a mildly retarded field mouse could do it by randomly whacking the buttons enough times without ever knowing the manual existed". The people responsible for this school of thought need to be taken out back and thrashed soundly till they see the error of their ways.
