In the News There's a story making its rounds across the 'net about a woman who missed several online classes, and failed her semester, and she claims this happened because she bought a Dell laptop with Ubuntu on it - instead of Windows. She didn't know what Ubuntu was, and was surprised to see that her Windows software, such as Microsoft Office, didn't work. While this isolated case sounds a bit ridiculous, there is still a bigger problem here.

If she had said the same thing about Mac OS X, you would have seen the Mac fanbois do the same thing. Or Red Beanie Linux, or Suffering Succotash Linux, or whatever.

You're just jealous because Ubuntu was on her Dell, not Suse.
