Damn straight. I'm proof that you don't have to be super smart to use it. ...wait a minute....headscratch.gif

HAHAH! Hey, I'm right there with you... XD

Yeah, I was using Ubuntu 7.10 when it came out and back then I had just started getting into computers and knew NOTHING of linux. Used it for the next 2 years :D

I love Ubuntu. Everything works well and it's so simple to customize. c:

Ubuntu is much easier than doing a net install on Debian "Hamm" which is where I started . the only distro I found easier was Caldera - back in the day (shame it went down).

I don't think that people who use Linux are special. I think that people who ONLY use Windows (or Mac) are special though ... "Special Ed".

I use BOTH Linux and Windows. Of course, I like to use the right tool for the job. I'm not like some of these "Special Ed" people who only use a hammer, when they can easily have a hammer AND a screw driver in their toolbox.

Give that a read. Should be a good laugh or two as long as you(and assuming you=linux user) can take a joke. tongue.gif

And no, linux users aren't special. It's just a matter of choice, and nothing more.
It's like asking if using an android phone makes your special over using a windows or an iphone. It's just a choice.

I would expect a linux user to be smarter than a windows user.
