There are a few steps involved. So here it goes:

1. Pull down pants (or insert the disk)

2. Sit or Stand (Boot the Disk)

3. Aim (click Install on the Desktop)

4. Leak, without missing (Selecting your setup, such as time zone and such)

5. Flush (saying "Bye, Bye" to windows by reformating)

6. Wash hands (Putting in your passy and letting it install)

7. Dry hands (REBOOT)

8. Walk away (BOOT INTO LINUX!!!!)




>.> That is my analysis. That is all. <.<

They're working on that part next. Installing easily gets people in the door.

There are plenty of things, and many of which can only be found on linux.

Here are just a few:

Compiz Fusion (look it up on youtube): Is some really awesome eye candy that with out-do any Mac you can find.

Runs much lighter

Runs faster

Far few viruses

Easier to setup a kick ass firewall that you do not have to pay for

You can play games on it through Wine or another Windows compatability layer.

Pretty much anything a windows/mac machine can do, and in some cases, better.
