Seen on campus: 2 Ubuntu Laptop Success Stories

,----[ Quote ]
| So I turned to my laptop OS of choice: Ubuntu. No chance for a license key or 
| media obtainment problem. 
| 
| My sisters had both seen me using Ubuntu before so they had seen “what it 
| looked like” but they never knew it wasn’t Windows. When I loaded it on their 
| laptops, they actually didn’t know it wasn’t Windows. In fact, the first 
| thing they both did was try downloading/installing iTunes from Apple.com. No 
| luck - Apple, where’s an Ubuntu client?    
| 
| So I set them up with all the software they needed for iPods. They actually 
| installed their own printers without even calling me (HP printers - great  
| compatibility). They use OpenOffice for their 
| papers/spreadsheets/presentations, Firefox was not new to them, and Evolution 
| is just as easy as Outlook.

Gameloft Moves 1,000 Desktops to Ubuntu Linux

| “It’s been a pretty big deployment, well over 1000 desktops and it’s been a
| huge success,” crows the source. “Ubuntu does the same job [as Windows] for
| zero cash. The most painful thing about the change over was moving to
| Thunderbird from Outlook. No one has batted an eyelid about moving to Gnome.”
