Playing with The Potato Guy! (aka KTuberling)

A group of semi-literate (and *totally* computer illiterate) Group D (or Class IV i.e. the lowest grade of employees in governmental employment) staff at an University near Kolkata amusing themselves playingThe Potato Guy“. The pertinent fact is that they have never used Linux on the Desktop and here they are completely at ease with it!

Linux is supposed to be tough! Linux on the Desktop is “Orrey baba!” (a Bengali expression that basically says “Wow! that’s not my cup of tea!“)… yet all of my experiences from the last 6 years of working with people on the ground has been otherwise, this is the latest case in point. Almost all first-time users adapt to Linux pretty fast. It’s the so called “computer literate” that have problems galore.

For what it’s worth, it was their fifth day on a computer.
