In terms of desktop Linux, the challenge is always getting people to try it. I wrote the book hoping to attract non-technical users. I wanted to give them a clear, easy way to switch, without feeling overwhelmed or intimidated.

If you do persuade people to try Linux, many will stay. Probably a good idea to use Ubuntu in your book, because it is an easy distro for introducing people to Linux.

I wanted to be able to walk the reader through Linux step-by-step, which meant choosing one distribution, and explaining differences between distros using Ubuntu as the base. It's a good introductory distribution, although Mint is pretty user-friendly, too. I still agonize over the choice!
