Ubuntu is far easier for someone who has never used a PC before than windows -- my 61 year old mother had no problem with it at least, she has never really used a computer before and figured out on her own how to use the software center by herself.

 

here we go again.. linux isnt that bad and the "my old nanny uses it just fine argument"... it's the year of the desktop all over again.

I have been reading these for 20 years now.. if I had a dollar for every time nonsense like this was published on the internet I'd be buying Microsoft now.

 

 

how do you think the Windows will last (be used) yet?

5? 50? 15? 

 

my own opinion about win was said:

 

- far from perfect (internally ugly, sluggish shell etc)

- not innovative 

- paid

- not transparent to coders

 

- can be used if get accustomed to it

- many people accustomed to it (including myself)

 

Imo windows will still be used long years (30 or so )but will

be not monopolist, maybe people will get bored with that 

slowly and try the other os news
