Comment Windows is easier for the average person to use (Score 1) 117

We have all worked with people who shout at you for not using Linux. No one every address the fact that it is cumbersome to use. When there is a linux distro that is user friendly then it will be used more. Geeks are enamoured with all the reasons everyone "should" use open source os's but never address the consumers using the product.

You obviously have never lived in the Bay Area. When I want to prove to someone how crazy expensive the Bay Area is I show friends this: This is a listing for a poorly built 70's townhouse. Cost 1.2 million. The average starter home in the Bay Area is 1 million. Rent averages $2500 to $3500 (with roommates). Say you are moving and want to overlap a month, which is very common. For 2x $3000 a month rent and 2 x a $3000 deposit you are temporarily out $12,000! Not to mention the $30 for a grilled cheese and coke. Not kidding. I live in Austin when I dont have to be in Palo Alto. My rent here is $800 with a yard for my dog. Dont diss the bay area money complaints.
