Comment Re: Not a dumb terminal - Linux with locked down U (Score 3, Interesting) 131

Chromebooks are perfect from many situations. I recently replaced my dad's Windows PC with a chromebox and it's made both of our lives much better. Twice a year his PC would be a bogged down mess even with malware / anti virus software. No longer an issue. It's been 6 months and all is good.

I know this, and you know this, and it seems that many a Slashdot reader knows this. Regrettably, this is Texas - where many think that anybody who looks like they are from another country that is not Mexico is automatically a terrorist.

Beyond this, there's a saying about idiots. You can tell an idiot, but you can't tell them much.

Still, this is not to tell you to stop. Keep going. Just remember that you're not going to get through somebody whose brain pain is so devoid of matter that it's a vacuum. And in that regard, you have my sympathy.

Comment Resources for learning (Score 1) 193

...no really. Teach a man to fish and all that. Some of the best resources can be found at the local library for learning this stuff, as well as community colleges. On one hand, it helps that they are willing to learn this stuff - but on the other hand, it helps that they understand that you're not necessarily going to be available 24/7 for their needs.
