    one thing I like about the learning curve of Linux

    My dad has a laptop that he uses solely for email and web surfing. Some how spyware and junk kept on ending up on his windows install.

    I figured that since he uses the laptop for a very specific purpose I thought linux would be great since I wouldn't have to worry about compatibilitiy and all that.

    And a lil while ago I found out my brother was trying to fiddle with settings and install some stuff, annnndd, since he knows nothing about linux, he wassn't able to clutter up my nice clean install whose main purpose is Evolution and Firefox hehe

    you may feel elitist now, but that learning curve is more a problem really.

    i hope this spec for Ibex may help:

    the only way you should keep your brother out is by not giving him the password and not by a big learning curve.

    Um - what does LOL mean, anyway?
    If at first you don't succeed - just buy the company and tell them to make the one you want.
