Lindows - please pay me to try out Linux?

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on April 12, 2002 09:24 PM
I took a look at the Lindows site. The screenshots they had looked like KOffice to me, not like Windows programs. Then I saw that they wanted $99 for people to sign up and test their software...?!?!? There didn't seem to be anything there that indicated they are reaching their goals. Show me real screenshots of real Windows applications running, then I'll be impressed.

I disagree with an earlier poster, though - Windows compatibility is not necessarily the key to Linux on the desktop. Linux apps exist - it's a matter of changing attitudes of the casual user.
