PC World: Would You Pick Linux Over Windows 2000?

“A ping to Wintel’s pong: Speedy, reasonably priced Linux

“Waiting for Windows 2000? While you’re on hold, Larry Augustin,
president of VA Research, would like to bend your ear about why
Linux should be your next OS.”

“Linux guys give their parents Linux machines,” Augustin says,
likening them to WebTV set-top boxes. “They can configure them so
their parents can’t delete applications. They just log in and get
their e-mail.”

“Lack of productivity applications is the primary problem with
Linux, at least on the desktop”
