I've *always* run Linux on my desktop (AMD Semperon on a KS Rock
motherboard) AND laptop (IBM Thinkpad X31).  And never ran *any*
version of MS-Windows *ever* (at home or at work when I was working at
UMass).  Both my laptop and desktop run CentOS 5.

At the local library, all but two of the workstations run CentOS 5 (all
but one are diskless).  Library patrons and staff people have no problems
using these machines. (I keep them up-to-date.)
