Ubuntu 13.10 is a great Linux distro with awesome features such as the Heads Up Display and Smart Scopes. Is it user friendly though? Let's get Diana put it to the test. She may have tried Ubuntu 12.10 a year ago but she was a little biased back then due to how much she hated Windows 8. Let's see if she still likes Ubuntu now that she is better navigating different operating systems.

Please note this is the desktop version of Ubuntu and not the Server or Touch version

The mother in this video uses Windows XP (2001) as her main OS dual booted with Elementary OS (a fast Linux distro). Would you like to see her try out Linux, Mac, Windows or other operating systems through history such as Ubuntu Satanic Edition 666.8 (2010)? Then give your suggestions in the comments section. Give this video lots of likes, views, favorites and comments if you want my mum to try out other operating systems. I am open to any operating system suggestions you give especially if these videos go semi-viral (over 100,000 views). This channel is dedicated to me "introducing" people (mum, dad, me) to different operating systems they have never used before and leaving them to suffer in confusion struggling to do anything in an unknown computer environment... or see if these other operating systems are better than Microsoft Windows.
