PowerPoint-style presentations in Linux, you can view Web Pages that use
and other "glitz" features, and that you can manage all your files though
simple "point, click, drag and drop" visual interfaces. Could the biggest
Linux usability be that most of the people teaching newbies to use Linux
are too smart and know too much?"
