"About six months ago, I first started playing with the Linux
operating system,... I thought Linux was a neat toy for students
and hobbyists. But I thought it would be years before Linux was
ready for ordinary folks, since it was way too difficult to install
and use. Boy, was I wrong."
"I doubted whether the loose cooperative of programmers that
maintains and extends Linux could design an interface as usable as
Windows or the Mac. Wrong again. Linux comes with a choice of two
interfaces, the Free Software Foundation's slick GNOME and the even
slicker K Desktop Environment from the KDE Project. Neither is as
polished or intuitive as Windows or the Mac, but both are about 75%
of the way there."
