You too huh? I have had relatives lining up since thanksgiving: "I really need you to take a look at my computer, if I bring it on christmas, can you fix it up?"

I particularly love the call I received a few days ago: "Son, I am at the neighbours house and they're having problems with their wireless doohicky, can you walk them through it?"

At least I have been able to slowly start switching relatives over to ubuntu. I have an aunt who asks me to wipe windows and install ubuntu whenever she buys a new laptop.

Build a system that even a fool can use and only a fool will want to use it.

Working...
