Linpro (Norway): Linux and daily use - reporting from the desktop of a 'normal' user

(Other stories by Sigurd Rinde)

[ Thanks to Gaute Lindkvist for this link. ]

"User is in his 'forties', and is normally not clad in /. t-shirts. More of a 'suit' I'm afraid. PC experience started with Apple II and visicalc. Operates from a home office with frequent visits - and log in per laptop - to other offices in Europe."

"With an attitude that habits does not have to rule my life I really feel that I've won by changing to Linux. It's stable, it's controllable, it's even fun. (always thought that learning was fun..)"

"And the few times I needed a helping hand both Mandrake and Caldera did their best without sending me through the hoops of four levels of interrogation before support - MS style. Friends that knows Linux is a boon, thanks to those!... My favourite story for Mac and Windows friends is about Jean Reilly (the chap behind Moneydance) that replied twice on a Sunday within two hours, and offered to help porting Quicken stuff into my Moneydance! And the costs, or rather lack of such! I'm a fanatical tester of all kinds of applications. I'm now the embarrassed owner of a stack of unused (Windows programs) licenses."

Complete story.
