| What? You asked why I give Linux to my father? 
| Of course I give it to him, he have been using 
| linux for more than 2 years now. My father and 
| my sister were a fond user of Linux. He use 
| Kubuntu 7.04 on his PC at his house, and Linux 
| Mint Felicia on his office. Yet he is not an 
| IT worker, he just a lecturer teachin 
| Philosophy. My sister like using Linux for 
| itâs unique style. She use Linux Mint Felicia 
| for daily activities in his university, and 
| she has been a kind of linux marketer whenever 
| her friends ask her about it (giggles, since I 
| myself were hardly doing it) â Well, nope she 
| is not an Engineering, or Computer Science 
| student, she majoring Psychology (and Iâve 
| been asked her to do the research about people 
| and open source for her final project).


What makes Ubuntu so user friendly?

| Of course what you really need to do is define 
| âuser friendlinessâ. For many people that means 
| âjust be Windowsâ. But for some itâs much more 
| than that. If you say âJust be Windowsâ â doesnât 
| that include Vista? And Vista was not the most 
| user-friendly OS. User-friendly, to me, is an 
| operating system (as a complete whole â not in 
| pieces) that does not interfere with the user. A 
| real user friendly operating system will allow 
| the user to do what they need to do without 
| confusing road blocks or cumbersome sub-systems. 
| And, finally, a user-friendly operating system 
| should be secure from the threat of viruses and 
| malware without the inclusion of third-party 
| software. Linux has that in spades.

| witching them to Linux or a Mac really is the easiest, most
