    My mom doesn't know she's using Linux!

    xD
    I put Linux on my old laptop with an XP transformation pack.
    She thinks it's XP and uses it for school and everything.
    She said my laptop is amazing and so fast, and she thinks its cool that she hasn't had viruses yet. I told her she was using Linux about a month later after previously putting it on there and telling me to take it off. She said she loved it and it was so much easier than she thought!

    I CHALLENGE OTHERS TO DO THIS MISSION.

    Yeah it's cool that she likes it but the deception part isn't so cool.

    Same happens here at home, some people don't even realise they are not on Windows, they just think I've installed some kind of transformation pack.
    While it's great to know Linux is actually easy to use and we are not the only ones to say that, it shows that for most people computers = Windows.

    Yay for installing Linux on people's computers without getting prior permission?
