I managed to get both of my parents to switch to Xubuntu. My dad is an engineer and was becoming frustrated with his Windows machine and how slow AutoCAD was running. Now that he's using Xubuntu and Draftsight (not as good as AutoCAD) he gets his work done and doesn't have to pull his hair off because the computer is too slow. Same thing with my mom, she loves Xubuntu and LibreOffice and the other day I heard her telling her friends how "modern" she is, haha.

Nice article David. I had the same issue before. I recomend you make your own custom livecd with all the stuff you want in it. I used uck before and it saved my life a few times. Here's an article that you might like.

UCK: apt-get install uck
