No I'm not writing off Linux, just shifting flavours and the problems 
that is likely to involve. I am trying flat out to get rid of MS out of 
my office, seven and  a half years, so far, but I am getting closer.

My point is, that other people who are users, such as at home or small 
office etc., just couldn't be bothered with Linux. It may work very 
well, but appears disjointed, fragmented and disorganised. By the way, 
that's how it appears to me.

It obviously appears much worse to other people.

As I have said before and say again, perception is reality.

I am not going to leave Linux, but neither would I push it to any one 
other than heavy and experienced computer users.
