I'm no Linux expert, but it's reached a point where I'm comfortable enough to have set up a laptop with Kubuntu for my dad to use - he primarily sticks to a browser and printing, so the underlying OS is rather irrelevant to him. Fortunately getting my antique LaserJet 4350 to work with it turned out to be easier than on Windows.

If my dad was a more sophisticated computer user I'd hesitate (I have an easier time troubleshooting Windows than Linux, based purely on past experience), but given his needs, as long as what's currently installed stays up, we're both happy.

His only need for Windows is to reprogram remote car starter modules - he installs them on the side, and every car needs to have a module's firmware flashed for that specific make/model/year/etc, and the software to do that is Windows only...but for his ordinary uses - I'm happy to have him on Linux.
