I sell a few used computers and I think linux is great. but not usefull for the ignorant user, like me. I tried Mepis several months ago and it did everything but recognize soundcards.
I have tried Ubuntu 5.10 on two older systems and it is even greater, if I don't want to be online. It's 50 questions I don't know the answers to, static or DHCP, IP address, Subnet mask, Gateway address, Domain address, and don't know if there will be others to come.
