I think it's quite strange to tell someone he's talking nonsense, when his 
experience is based on linving in a country for decades and your own by 
knowing some people who migrated from there...

I have to fully agree with Wolfgang. The mother-centrated family model may be 
true in the amer-austra-new-zealandian world (at least the soap operas on TV 
tell this) but I'm quite sure that in more conservative europe the story is 
quite different.
And: kids want their 3D-splash-them-all-games. Kids won't switch to Linux as 
long as the games industry doesn't change.
Moms usually will work with what they know, every change is a problem, since 
it's different from what they are used to and they have to learn anew.
