Okay, last post today. Then I’ll go back to ignoring my 3 readers.
I just bought my wife a new laptop. i3/4gigs ram/500gb HDD. Really her old laptop was probably fast enough. But it was just in a sorry state. She had it since the Core Duo’s came out. One of those ugly silver Dells.
Anyhow, Win7, Office etc etc all installing and I am migrating the data now. So I am going to bump the RAM up and give her Ubuntu on her old machine. I think I want to do 10.10 since it’s a little prettier. But 10.4 is of course LTS. She isn’t gonna want to upgrading a year from now.
Ultimately she just wants to check it out as her job is always looking for ways of saving money. And FOSS is on the table but none of them are really comfortable with the idea, yet.
Thoughts on 10.10 vs 10.4 for her? How about giving them the tools they need to make the right call on FOSS vs a traditional solution?
