Are you a windows user? Thinking of updating to Windows 8? Well... think again! A mother who loves windows xp tried windows 8 and hated it (link below) yet without any knowledge of Linux operating systems she tried Ubuntu 12.10 and loved it! It was better looking, simpler to use and much more appealing overall.

Tasks Given:
- Change your desktop background
- Visit the gmail website
- Write and save a text document
- Quit Firefox
- Calculate 680 x 45 =
- Find where your downloaded applications are stored
- Turn off your computer

The mother in this video only ever uses Windows XP running with the classic win95 theme. Would you like to see her try out other operating systems such as windows 1.01 or windows 3.11? How about non-Microsoft operating systems such as various Mac OSX versions throughout history or a variety of Linux builds?

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.
