Just got an email tonight from a customer saying:
I'd like Linux removed from our computer, just personal preference.
- These people *often* geot into massive trouble with clicking on any and every link and infecting their computer when on XP. XP was a nightmare which is how I got them to switch.
- They've been on ***** Linux for well over a year, I was not aware of any problems.
- They are not on MINT, but a distro that is getting long in the tooth *and* has some issues, no doubt. I put it on their machine, but in the last year (or longer) have switched my main distro to Mint and am very pleased. Am also using it as the main distro for others.
- These people are VERY hesitant to any sort of change.
- They are not computer adept at all.
- They use incredibly simple apps, browser, office suite, photos from the camera and affiliated functions.
I also understand I will do what they want... after all, they are paying the bill.
However... I was waiting to switch from the previous flavour of Linux to Mint untilo there were enough questions/problems to make it worthwhile... 'why fix it if it's not brokend?"
But they are not even aware of the benefits of Mint and I'd LOVE to get them to try it for one month before actually going backwards to XP.
Any advice/hints to get them to give Mint a try? I'm willing to spend my time (w/o charge) to do the switch if they don't like Mint and to keep them away from Windoze mischief.
