I will be 65 this year. Switched to Linux about 15 years ago. I used a number of distros initially, but finally settled into Ubuntu. After retiring from my career working with the Developmentally Disabled, I joined The Geek Squad as a part time agent.
Each day I work, I look at people coming in with Microcrap machines and I say to myself,"These poor people are Informationally Disabled.". I try to help them as best I can, but they are closed source conditioned. It is a shame, really.
