December 2013. Wife loves apple and windows. Uses win 7, an iPhone and an iPod. Dreams of owning an iPad. Hates Linux.
Jan 2014. Gets Samsung galaxy tab 3 for her 40th.
May 2014. Wife uses tablet all the time. Buys non-apple mp3 player so she can ditch iTunes. Dreams of when her contract is up so she can get Android phone. Wants to replace ageing laptop that keeps breaking. Agrees to use old vista laptop that we got for free to try Mint MATE for a month. If she likes, will consider a chrome book for replacement. She seems fairly optimistic about it.
Linux for the win.
