    My wife works for a large software company that makes and supports the Home-Building Industry from inventory to sales financing. They deal with life-long “Windows” users. How could they adapt to OSS without confusing a huge number of not particularly computer literate users? Many of the clients are proud Americans who would see Linux as “foreign”. Would it be possible to create an American Brand for Linux based OSS? Replace the Penguins with Eagles? Have software writers with pseudonyms like Smith or Brown?
    Eh?

    Jim,

    No single corporation owns the Linux kernel. However there are few American distros you can try out such as Red hat, Novell and others.
