Editorial After reading Adam Scheinberg's original article "The Paradox of Choice" and Kevin Russo's response, I want to add my personal comments to this discussion. I will quote Adam and Russo several times and pick up their arguments.

user is starting to hati his trojan infested windows, an he heard about something called linux, so he types "linux" in google...

1, www.linux.org - info
2, www.linux.com - another info, i'm getting bored
3, www.redhat.com - wow! "open source leader"! hmmm, i don't wanna pay! fedora? what fedora? but i'm not a "highly technical enthusiast"! i'm gettig bored more and more...
4, www.linux-mandrake.com - "friendly operating system"! i've got it!
5, www.suse.com/us - hmmm, maybe next time...

so, there is no difficult choice for the linux newbie. and what if mandrake fails? maybe the user tries windows one mor time, but now there will be a little bug digging in his brain "maybe the another linux will be right for me"

the linux has you ;)
