An American woman has told a TV station in Madison, Wisconsin that something called Ubuntu prevented her from joining online classes at her local technical college.
According to WKOW TV, Abbie Schubert recently ordered a Dell laptop, expecting "your classic bread-and-butter computer." But when she unboxed the $1,100 machine that arrived on her doorstep, she didn't find bread and butter. She found Ubuntu. [...]
Um... how do I say this... she's an idiot?
No. Not an idiot for ordering Ubuntu. That was a smart move. She is an idiot because, well, she's STUPID. She is attending TECHNICAL COLLEGE and is trying to install Microsoft Word (!!!) on Linux!
Truth be known, that can ACTUALLY be done, and it WILL run. You need to have WINE
But, she is attending a technical college and can't figure out the most basic of technical concepts. Would she try to install the PC version of Word onto a Mac? Duh. Probably. I doubt she bothered to ask her classmates or professors for assistance. She is better off not wasting her money on school and should take that fry cook job. She clearly does not have the intellectual capacity to master even the most basic of technical skills. She is completely out of touch with the technical community by admitting she doesn't know what Ubuntu
is. Technical college is not right for her.
