Subject: On Windows usability From: Lubomir Rintel <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Date: Mon, 06 Sep 2010 19:11:58 +0200 Message-id: <email@example.com>
I just read a mail where you were complaining about Windows usability <http://blog.seattlepi.com/microsoft/archives/141821.asp>. Needless to say, I find most of your complains and expectations valid. Let me suggest you an alternative software stack to you. It's called Fedora, is built with usability in mind and contains only entirely free components.
Just pick the live media at <http://fedoraproject.org/get-fedora> and you'll get it running in minutes. I'm sure you'll love the GNOME desktop the default live media ships with; but in case you won't, it takes virtually no effort to give KDE or maybe XFCE a try.
In case you'll ever find yourself in trouble with your new desktop, encounter a bug or just want to share your ideas to make Fedora better, feel free to meet friendly people at mailing lists, or IRC <http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Communicate>.
Best Regards, -- Lubomir Rintel <http://v3.sk/~lkundrak>
