Linux gives me confidence

"This something I never had with windows. Confidence in my
operating system. What do I mean by this? Well let me explain. Just
recently I was doing a remote upgrade of Ubuntu Jaunty to Ubuntu
Karmic. Everything was going along as easily as a hot knife through
butter. Configuration files were changed, packages were downloaded
and were in the process of being installed. Then it happened.
"Halfway through the upgrade. At the most sensitive part where
the packages were being installed. The computer was rebooted. This
could easily happen to anyone if there is a power glitch and you
are not using an UPS. In this case, if you remember I was connected
remotely, the end user decided to reboot the computer. After I had
specifically told them not to touch it. I don't blame them. These
sort of things happen."
