Re:I supported wal-mart PC buyers

THATS why they are using Lindows instead
of a "l332t" distro like Debian or Slackass.
(That joke about Slackware was said with love.)

Lindows has the whole point+and+download thingy,
and installation of 3rd party software is likethe #1 ease-of-use problem in Linux.
(Drivers also count as software.)

If you can solve program installs, Linux can be
as easy if not easier than Windows. But until
we have a standard installation method that
doesn't suck like RPM, it's going to be quite
hard to use.

(And I have heard good things about Debian, though
I have never used it so I can't judge it one
way or the other.
