  1. Once again you guys hit it on the head…why hand out a distro that pretends to be windows. Go with distros that are unabashedly and unashamedly linux.

    Thanks for your thoughts on XMPP. I see XMPP as a framework, not a solution. XMPP is useless until you very painstakingly build a solution out of the framework that it is. XMPP is for developers to bake into an actual solution, and is not a usable product for end users.

    Whatever high-level service you build on top of XMPP, is what has a chance of being likeable.

    Links to Michael’s reaction videos to Linus Tech Tips Linux Challenge didn’t make it into the show notes. Just thought they would be good to have linked here.
    Part 1 - Reacting to Linus Tech Tips' Linux Challenge Part 1 - YouTube
    Part 2 - My Linux Tech Tips for Linus' Linux Challenge [ Reacting to Part 2 ] - YouTube
    Part 3 - See Printing In Linux Is Awesome! - Part 3 of Reacting to Linus Tech Tips Linux Challenge - YouTube
    You gotta admit, Michael did a great job with these.

    True, but from what i can see around me, when i try to convince people to switch over is that it’s best to have a distro that mimics the os they’ve been used to. There’s not a lot of people around me that want something new. They’ve been using windows for ever and the ease of use that came with phones doesn’t help either.
    When you have something that closely resembles what they have been using, that’s when they can gradually move away.
    Change often provokes resistance. And we want as little as possible, when we want to switch somebody to Linux.

  5. the trouble is the win imitators are almost always just skin deep, which leads to frustration when something that looks like windows doesn’t act like windows.

    linux doesn’t need trickery. it needs shelf space.
