I work in NGO @ Panvel. Here I switched one department (20-25 Users) 0n
Linux 3 years back. They use OpenOffice 2.2, Tally 7.2 (Linux Ver), Kmail,
Firefox and Write & Font software with using Wine.
Today When I ask in one department in organization that "Can we switch over
to Windows? As some body is donating Licensing cost for those PCs" All users
said "No, We can't work on Windows now. We need only Linux"...
I got pleasant surprised by their reply. I thought that they will switch to
Three years back when I was pushing these users to work on Linux. I had to
explain them advantages of Linux. They faced lots of issues in their daily
work. Some of them I could resolved easily, some of them took a long time,
In some cases they had to change their working style. But now when they are
using it for last 2.5 years without any issue, they dont want to go back to
Windows. They said that they forgot how to work on Windows. ....
They got addicted to Linux now..... :)
People say that Linux is not user friendly and cannot be used for Desktops
for general users.
Now I can surely say, if management plans to use Linux in offices, users &
admins work hard on it without having windows in mind then they can switch
Offcourse proffessional companies like Adobe, Corel, Font making companies
should make applications for Linux.
