Matthew Newton puts
together a Linux computer
for his Grandmother, as described in PC
World. "As I've said, Grandma has zero experience with PCs. Every
single concept that gets introduced to her is going to be new, so the
easier those concepts are to digest, the better; the more related to the
real world that Grandma has known for the better part of a century, the
better. I don't ever want her to hear the words "hierarchical file system."
But she can handle putting files into folders. So I want an interface that
provides the most pure, consistent, unadulterated files-and-folders
experience I can find.
