Who's the Fedora user?



This is one potential user of Fedora: Judy, from Arizona.  She sent in a 
letter to the editor of Red Hat Magazine that makes me weep inside.

What do we have to say to her?

Dear Red Hat,  I hope you will get this e-mail.  I am a single user
computer person.  I put yes down - so I could receive your e-mails.
To tell you the truth I do not know why.  Your main emphasis seems to
be on business.  I switched from Windows because I thought it would
be safer and healthier all the way round.  To tell you the truth I
feel totally lost in your system.  I cannot use my CDs that have
games.  I downloaded a game I had paid for.  No way could I get it to
work.  I wrote to Linux Game.  Their directions were like Greek, and
I only speak English.  I tried to download the anti-virus I use.
They have a version for Linux.  No way did I get that.  I looked
into your training, but that is extremely costly.  I have bought
books.  It all come s down to the fact There is little I am able to
do with Linux.  Mostly I would like to have a plug-in that works, as
to the fact there are many things I am unable to open, including some
mail, because I can find no way to do it.  Dear Red Hat - what are
you doing for us little people out here?  I am no further today than
I was the day this was installed.  Thank you, Judy D.
