Some tips: drop Outlook, and use some real email/usenet program instead.
For instance Mozilla Thunderbird for email. Drop Internet Explorer and
use Mozilla Firefox instead. Get rid of MS Office and replace it with
OpenOffice.org. That way, your wife can get used to the software first.
After switching to Linux, she'll be glad she can use the software she
will be used to by then. It'll make the transition a lot easier.

LOL Yep, that's right! Remember though, that most of the windoze users
are even too lame to pay for what they use.
