Her laptop has been running LinuxMint for a few days now. She has no clue. I had set her up with Firefox, Thunderbird, and OpenOffice a couple years ago. Since she only uses Internet, email, Docs, and picture viewing /editing, (I taught her on Photoshop and GIMP is almost identical) she doesn't realize I swapped her OS on Friday night. Both her Network printers work and she can still click a link to view her pics on the server upstairs. I'd say the WAF, (Wife Acceptance Factor) of the latest modern versions of Linux fully passes the test. Her only comments were "I love the new fonts you gave me" and "Why is this so much faster?" and "It's cool that the picture icons on my desktop are thumbnails" She may never know. She also thinks all my Linux books and talk over the past 3 years were a little geeky. Don't tell her!
