[News] Migrating People to GNU/Linux Just Got Easier

Hash: SHA1

Linux Migration for the Home PC User, Part 1

,----[ Quote ]
| Why would you consider migrating from Windows to Linux? In my work as a 
| volunteer computer service technician, the one thing which finds traction is 
| the impending death of XP. That Vista is significantly different without 
| necessarily being better, and requires hardware they can’t afford, while 
| their current machine is still in good shape, and perhaps the fear (justified 
| or not) which results from all the sales pitches they can’t avoid designed to 
| prod them into buying the next new security package, are all contributing 
| factors. But they don’t want a new hobby; they just want their computer to 
| work with less hassle.Z        
| I tell these people there is no magic pill. Switching is a way of shifting 
| the cost profile, which includes time and money. When you start having more  
| time than money, Linux starts to look a lot better.

| We're going to watch the progress, setbacks and hopefully the ultimate
| migration of this company to GNU/Linux and Free Software.


Linux s'il vous plaît: French Gendarmie say oui to Ubuntu

| The Gendarmie Nationale – France’s national police force – has been slowly
| introducing open source software to its 105,000+ policemen since 2005. In
| 2008 the decision was made to use only Ubuntu for all new workstations. A
| year on shows this has been a great success with happy users, a better
| network and cost savings of over seven million euro per year.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
