I can't stand that a maniac linuxian, just because he has more technical knowledge than me gives me a miserable page of command line instructions for how to compile a tarball (yes in some cases you still need to compile).
To be debated ... Because as I see it Linux is "hard" for you simply because it is *different* ... is that the core of your theory why Linux is "hard" and "not intuitive"? Take my wife for example. She's a total computer noob. In other words: She was never ever exposed to Windows, or Microsoft products, or the Windows-way of doing things. Result? She thinks Linux is easy !!!mintero wrote: If windows has chosen the simplicity-strategy and I choose this strategy too, that doesnt mean I have a windows mindset, but that I have the sense of the reality.
Of course. I never ever said anything opposite. But there is a slight difference I think: I am almost a native of this land here, where as you are somewhere lost in the woods searching for the highway that will take you pronto and subito to from LinuxLand to DollarLand $$$mintero wrote: There is enough place in linuxland for both of us.
And it always will be, because of it's open source nature.mintero wrote: And for other people who have different opinions. Linux is in evolution.
While it certainly is an alternative to Windows, it is not the same as Windows. I think that's a part of the problem you (but also others) have as well: You expect the alternative to Windows to behave the exactly same as Windows and you expect from it that it follows the same (business) rules ... I am not so sure that this will work, if I may be honest with youmintero wrote: Most people who will join it, will see it as an alternative to Windows. So I am adapting my strategy to that direction.
You nontheless shouldn't ignore that philosophy part, in my opinion.mintero wrote: I am talking business and not philosophy in this thread.
But that's the point! Who said they were going into a "good" direction? The absence of success in their case proves they were wrong so far, regardless of what they thought.mintero wrote: As about Xandros etc, many could be the reasons they failed to make a popular OS. Looking towards the good direction doesnt mean the result is garanteed.

For us, as a distribution this was a very interesting partnership. We are looking for OEM companies simply because:
- we would like people to have the possibility of buying computer with Mint installed in it.
- we do not want to start doing this ourselves (it's a different market, a different job and we're not good at this).
Mintero: if you have the money the skills and the motivation to start an OEM company, we're definitely interested in hearing about this.
