    Hang ups

    Okay folks I've been trying for about a year now to get Ubuntu acknowledged as an operating system on campus and so far it's been mixed. Several others consider it a great system... and, then comes questions about command prompts... and, how smart you have to be to run it. After explanations and everything else was told Andover's only going to run Windows due to a contract... (Damn) and just wondering how to even advertise it because know one seems to give a damn about it.

    I tend to just leave discs in locations where you might find people. I left some at the local library and had some contacts from it. People seem to have a hard time grasping a free operating system that works.

    Same here that's what I'm thinking of doing leaving some of my own burned disks but not the one from Ubuntu. People consider a free operating system to be easily exploited by hackers and hacks. On the opposite end the hacks for Ubuntu simply make it easier to run. Wonder when people will finally understand that free is just another word for enjoyable OS?

    A lot of people are resistant to change. All we can do is continue to spread the knowlege and mission of GNU/Linux but more specifically, Ubuntu. Try to seek open-minded individuals.

    Something mentioned to me in the midst of a discussion with my economics professor was the relation of product value to product price. People see the price of windows and complain about how much it costs, but it also has purposed value because of the price.

    You can tell your economics professor about how monopolies distort prices and how privative software makes people to buy golden jails and forces them to stay there into.
