"As Windows XP fades into the sunset, Ubuntu community
members are trying to reach out to millions of Windows XP users to
get them to switch to Linux. The Ubuntu pitch is pretty simple:
Stick with your existing Windows XP hardware and switch to Ubuntu,
rather than spending hundreds (or thousands) of dollars on a new PC
running Windows 7. The big question: Will Windows XP users embrace
the Ubuntu message?
"The Windows XP-to-Ubuntu migration pitch is particularly loud
on LinkedIn's Ubuntu Users Official Group. The big question posted
to the group:
"What stops XP-users from switching to Ubuntu? Can we make a
plan together to help those millions of XP-users (63% market share)
not to have to buy a new computer?"
