Christopher Dawson relates his teenage son's unhappy experience with Linux
on ZDNet. The problem seems to be Flash support for 64-bit Linux, which is not an uncommon complaint. "Dont let your users' first impressions be that Linux doesn't work. Get the deployment right before it appears on their desktops and many won't even notice the difference (unless they were using Vista; then they might thank you). I've convinced my kid to give it another shot when I do a clean install of 32-bit Ubuntu 8.04 as soon as it comes out. I'll report back on his impressions.
