At least this forum has a linux thread, and the forum users are moderately pro GNU/Linux, but sadly a lot of forums, even forums run by young tech savvy and probably relatively intelligent people, like Linus' forum, are still very hostile towards 21st Century computing, and have some kind of Amish Windoze religion thing going on.
An idea has been brought forward on this forum to build a dedicated TekSyndicate GNU/Linux distro. I personally think that's a great idea, as long as it's based on one of the major GNU/Linux distros so that it's easy to update and will support Steam and latest features without problems, and has a focus on privacy protection and security. I would use it. I will also keep my Windoze 7 install to play Windoze games of course, but I think it's clear that since a couple of years, there aren't many exciting revolutionary games coming out on Windoze anymore, and I really think it will take GNU/Linux to change that trend.
I think that conservatism and resistance to education is the only thing that's in the way for many users to enjoy the benefits of 21st Century computing. Pretty much anyone I've set up with GNU/Linux has immediately ceased to use Windoze except for games or Adobe software, and is very enthusiastic about GNU/Linux.
I would like to know other people's opinions on that, preferrably of other experienced GNU/Linux users, obviously people that have not experienced GNU/Linux can't form an opinion. Do you think conservatisme and resistance to education/evolution/improvement is the problem, or do you think there is another reason why a lot of users are not ready to step into 21st Century computing?
