The stupid people are also the ones that dish out the money for new
products and upgrades. The stupid people are the ones that buy the
"For Dummies" books. The stupid people are the ones that pay for
tech support and make some of the linux companies money, which in
turn allows the companies to bring out newer versions of the software.
The elitist attitude of telling "stupid" people to stay away from Linux will
not further its share in the OS market. Besides, stupid people are
generally just uneducated and if it wasn't for peoples lack of knowledge
and inability to carry out certain techy tasks many on this list would be
out of pocket and possibly a job.
To slighty modify some Whitney Houston song "I believe that stupid
people are our future, teach them well and let them pay their way "
