Another Windows-user converted (yeah! :-)


Today, my father finally gave up his resistance, and we installed Redhat 6.2 on part of his harddisk. He had got some extra room on the disk, after we upgraded the machine, because Windows 2000 suddenly wouldn’t boot.

It was also about time, my father tried Linux — now I’ve run Linux af my primary OS for over a year, and I’m not thinking of going back to Windows. But based on his reacktiosn, after his first attemps to do simple things, like mounting the windows partition, I’m not sure, that he will throw the Windows partition away just now.

If Corel and Borland can come up with a good distribution and some good development tool, respectively, then I’m sure my father will switch to Linux — together with many others.
