helloworld8923273dNever used a computer? is she really old or been in jail for most of her life?
cb219395273dnah, she's 55 and never really had to touch a desktop computer.
her phone is the only tech she really uses (excluding her car/radio/tv and so on as everyday usage) and even that just as a light user😏
SoulSkrix4852273dAw bless her heart, that's quite sweet of your mum tbh.
Time to teach her dem excel skills
@SoulSkrix don't think linux is the appropriate way to teach her.😌
i've tried linux mint and Ubuntu myself and found it too many hurdles to overcome. i kept trying it in the hopes of using it as a daily driver but i felt like running endless times into a wall, so in the end i kinda gave up😐
(i'm more of the GUI guy who avoids to use the terminal whenever possible😅)
i think we'll stick to windows since this is the environment she has to master... and all of our devices except phones run windows😕
@SoulSkrix and to your first part:
yeah relatable 😅😂
i'll sure watch out for her but still she will have to do her mistakes.
i know that feeling, we try to set everything up as secure as possible ... they still will find a way to fuck everything up, and we're like: how's that even possible??
@cb219 haha Linux is indeed frustrating and whilst normally you can search a lot of stick the problems or stick to safe apt repositories (in the distros you have tried) if I want to get something to work that is for normal use and not dev use it's fine, its getting the weird tools working that brings me some work. But on the brightside, after I used it long enough I found myself with a system where bloat and control aren't an issue anymore
Haha fair enough, luckily my Mum doesn't tend to go outside what I've told her as she requests my permission to do certain things (if often give her explicit instructions when installing new things). Though that isn't much of a concern nowadays, no dirty toolbars etc. But as you say; they do find a way to break it or slow it down some how :)
