Sowing the Seeds

An update to my post a few weeks back about turning on a co-worker to Ubuntu...

Today I hear a grumbling conversation between my colleague and the person who looks after our computer systems here (he's a structural engineer too, but just happened to draw the longest straw when our previous IT-type guy left us). There's some moaning from my colleague about problems updating his XP machine. Seems he had to download 46 updates and it failed on the last one...

Long story short, my colleague's final statement of the conversation was:

"Jeezus.. no wonder people are moving to Linux..."

Consider the seeds sown. ;)
