My wife is complely new to computing and is using Mandrake 8.2 with
(relative) ease. Because she has not used Windows she thinks stuff like
KMail is the norm and thinks it odd that other people have computers
that crash. The kids have their own desktops and cannot trash my
stuff and they do things with the Gimp that they could not do at school with
Windows(school can't afford software). Amazing. It occured to me that
a complete newbie would now probably be able to install Linux more
easily than Windows 95.
It should be in schools.
