- About Us
Any distro of Linux that I've seen has been thwarted with the occurence of error messages that are of absolutely no help to the end-user. That's because the developers write the software with only one type of person in mind - a developer.
The reason Microsoft do well is because everything that the user sees is written in a way that they can at least 'pretend' to understand. Users therefore don't get disheartened by their experiences quite as quickly as what they do with Linux.
Having said all this, I think everyone should wait until the first official release of the product is made. If they don't release the source code then that would be something even I would quetsion before handing over my money.
