’cause Best Buy doesn’t have a clue.
I’ve already told my washing machine story.
This beats it:
I walked into a Best Buy the other day. We are seeking some price discounts on thumb drives…our K4K kids will need them soon and we need to purchase them in bulk. Just price shopping, but as always, my Linux Hat is on and I usually do not pass an opportunity to spread the word. Even to folks who have obviously heard of Linux or maybe have even tried it on occasion.
Like a member of the Geek Squad (obligatory *tm inserted to please our attorney.)
It did not raise a flicker within the eye of awareness. Not a word I said.
This “Computer professional”…this “Knower-Of-All-Things-Computer”.
He did not have a clue. Not a clue.
I had no choice. I spent the next ten minutes educating him…telling him about the technology and the advantages of the GNU/Linux Operating System. His first response almost took my breath.
“That is not possible. Microsoft would not allow it.”
