Windows to Linux Migration

by bitznbitez

I recently migrated a non technical user from Windows Vista to Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal.   The impetus for the upgrade was that the Vista laptop was increasingly problematic.    Nothing out of the ordinary just the standard Windows issues that seem eternal.

I replaced a Microsoft Office, Outlook and Quicken environment with a Libre Office, Thunderbird and Lightning, and KMyMoney software suite.

With a little bit of training the migration has been a success.   So far the stability and reliability of Linux has offset any learning curve issues for the user.

We shall see…..
