Linux in the Real World

| ubuntu | linux | work |

update 6/24/2024: this is from a post I made on the original Ubuntu Forums, it’s so funny to read this so many years later and observe how naive and silly I was.

I started working part time at Burlington Coat Factory in August, I am a sales associate. Anyway, it surprised me that the store used Red Hat on all of its computers instead of windows. Most stores in the mall are stuck on windows and are afraid to use anything else. I was very surprised and excited that my store had been using Linux for years and they are not afraid of anything bad happening. The best part is that everything works flawlessly. Stuff in the store goes wrong all of the time, but there has never, ever been a problem with the computers! It is amazing, I am almost positive that if they were using Windows things would be going wrong all the time and they would need an IT expert there to fix all of their problems. The Linux revolution is alive and well, first Burlington, next the whole world!
