Linux IS for Grandmothers

I was listening to Episode 378 of Leo Laporte’s The Tech Guy podcast the other day. About 20 minutes in, he receives a call from a grandmother asking how to use her Skype phone while on the road. At one point, Leo asks her if she has a laptop, which she does and she is running Linux on it.

This non-technical grandmother has made the decision to stop paying the Microsoft tax and has moved to Linux all on her own. And she loves it. The enthusiasm in her voice is infectious. She is undaunted by the new world she has discovered and even loves the command line. If she can do it, anybody can. All it takes is a little motivation.
