    Re: Why do people think Linux is hard to use?

    Because basic things like Skype doesn't work, or printers .. or an upgrade wipes out a Win bootloader. Those can be killers, decimating all of the good that exists elsewhere within the software.

    Poll: Re: Replace Evolution with Thunderbird 3 in Lucid

    I'm able to seamlessly share Thunderbird profiles between XP and Ubuntu, so I'd vote to have default Tbird in 10.04. When I started using Ubuntu I was already a Tbird user, but Evolution seemed slick.
