My brother agrees with you

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on May 22, 2004 11:21 PM
My brother runs a small business, with a dozen or so PCs.

For years, I've been telling my brother about Linux, but he was a die-hard Windows users.

Nevertheless, he used to complain about Windows all the time. And those complaints grew to a fever pitch when he started to use Windows XP in his business. Some sort of incompatibility between Windows XP and Windows 98 kept wiping out his Access database. So he was looking at a big expense to upgrade his entire business to Windows XP, and he wasn't happy,

So, instead, he upgraded his entire business to Linux. And the distribution he chose was Sun's JDS.

Since then, he has had nothing but good things to say about Linux, and JDS in specific. Like I did some years back, my brother has rediscovered the fun of computing. He doesn't have to fight with his PCs all the time, Linux just works and does what he asks it, and his business runs much more smoothly.
