Good job Rob.
You're a poet, though you do not know it.
Anyway, that's a nice job you did there, when it comes to people doing
as you said, "word processing and email" Ubuntu really sticks out as a
green light, mainly because of how suitable it is for that, not all pc's
are for the power user *cough Slackware *cough* and it's nice to see
someone that is finding Ubuntu a comfortable distro to use.
Yup, I made sure things were easy to find, I mean it's pretty obvious if
you're used to clicking on menus, I guess in a way it's like the start
menu is on the top of the screen. What is great about Ubuntu is that it
does the job.
I'm sure Mandriva/Fedora/PCLinuxOS/Debian would have done the job too
(as I'll probably have pointed out to me on my local LUG mailing list,
but I prefered to install Ubuntu as I'm familiar with it and it helps
when I offer support.
Now all I have to do is ask her to pop in an Ubuntu CD with each
Christmas card she sends out this year :-)
