This is the story of how my mother became a linux enthusiast.
This is a good story. BTW, my wife and I have been using Linux (Ubuntu) for awhile now so I definitely relate to this guys Mom. My wife seems to have no difficulty using Ubuntu. She has a few games that she likes, and is able check her email and surf the web, etc. She may not need to worry about installing updates or changing the screen resolution (for example), but she accomplishes everything she needs to, using Ubuntu.
