Re: [vox] my mother has seen the light

Lindows is specifically targeted as a Linux distribution that will be a Windows replacement for the non-technical user. Take a look at the product at http://www.lindows.com . One assumption is that the user has a high speed connection to the internet so that the one-click software update / install process works easily. If your Mom has a dial-up connection, then this is probably not a good solution. You can find pre-installed Lindows machines at WalMart.
