wounded in the line of duty
Discussions of how well an operating function performs on the desktop often focus on the "personal" desires of the user, such as support for the persons hardware and preferred applications. This is relevant and almost the whole story for a home computer. In the corporate environment these considerations are only about half the issues. In that environment there are the problems of automatically updating software on machines, controlling security policy, getting commercial software that is designed to work with MS Windows servers to interface with Linux machines, getting Linux to interface with MS "Active Directory" etc. So I think that Mother is only a good picture of %50 of the corporate picture (i.e. she is the ordinary users) Add Mother's son who must maintain the whole clan's computers (i.e. the IT department) and you can see the corporate picture. I think this view explains why Red Hat Enterprise Linux has the upper hand on Ubuntu.
