Linux After reading yet another "why Linux is not ready for the desktop" article/discussion, I decided that, as someone who uses Linux exclusively at home, its about time I wrote my response to the attitudes expressed. I have been using Linux since January 1999 (Red Hat 5.2 off of a cover disc).

I work in a centre that provides *very* basic IT training for people (lesson 1 includes turning on the computer, and using a mouse), and you're completely right.

Windows is *not* intuitive... people stare at the screen with fear in their eyes sometimes, because they have absolutely no idea what they should do next.

But then I'm not sure Linux would be any better... no idea how to fix that, just thought I'd do a brain dump ;)
