help convincing my dad that linux is the way to go
hi I got my knoppix cd working and now I will need a way to convince my dad that we need to switch to linux.
I so far havent been able to figure out how to get my adsl sympatico internet modem to work yet and that will definetly need to work for him to want to use linux. any help would be appreciated.
he's still not completly taken with the whole open source thing. it took him about a week and the computer shop guy to convince him that firefox was a good idea. the gimp took less time, but he never really uses graphics editing stuff that much anyway.
basically i just need to convince him that he can trust his computer with something I downloaded from the internet, and that linux is not just for geeks and he will be able to use it.

what is the actual make of modem
Ask him if the constant MS security issues are comforting. Why does he trust a company with an awful record? No one can see what MS has in their softwre. However, with linux people and look at the source and see for themselves if there is any security or spyware concerns. The only way for him to believe that he can use it is from him to use it. Good Luck :D
