Today I feel like I have conquered.
I have for the first time convinced a family of four who's computer usage is of the usual web browsing, printing, yahoo mail, hot-mail, etc etc and of course some played games such as Left 4 dead 2 and Dead Island 2.
I've been over their house many times fixing their computer with the same exact problem.
First problem was their Kodak ESP C310 printer(WiFi only) would not work with their windows 7 computer any time they would turn off the printer or the computer, or both. By not working I mean windows asks you to install a printer.
2nd problem was that they kept getting viruses even with paid yearly subscription to McAfee with every feature activated and update to date. Most times I'll run Spybot S & D and they will pick up what Mcafee doesn't and it usually works but this time it was different this virus was bad. it was one of those viruses where they close all applications your running and tell you that everything you open up is in fact a virus, and then it shows an obviously fake scanning window saying you have 1000's of viruses. It was one of those.
Long story short, they were scared that they would lose their data, or it would be difficult learn an new system entirely I re assured them I could easily back up their data and continued to tell them that Linux is so safe that their aren't even anti-viruses made for it since theres no market... of course they then gave me the response I half expected which was "Is it just not popular enough yet?".
My response was searching up it up on Google for the estimated Linux users and it was around 25 million people use Linux(of course these are estimates but even a 50% error rate is still high)
Anyways I installed unbuntu linux, and it took me 15 minutes to show them how it works, I made cute little icons so they could just click facebook and bam theres face book.
