A report from pgCon 2013
Little things that matter in language design
I'd agree here. It took me about 15 seconds to get my sister up and running on Fedora 15. The three most important things:
- The upper left corner is "magic"
- Type after triggering to search for applications
- Hold alt to get the shutdown option
With that netbook for classes, a decent (Windows 7) laptop for the dorm room, a 4G flash stick, and Firefox Sync, I think she'll be set for quite a while.
Me? I'll stick with XMonad and my homebrew not-a-DE.
