We went from the Turing Test, where a computer tries to convince a human that it is not a computer but a real person, to Captchas, where humans try to convince a computer they're a real person, not a computer.

A lot of it is fear of the unknown.
I installed Linux on the computer at my local credit union about 20 years ago and they've been happily using Linux ever since, on both their desktops & their servers.

Do they actually know anything about Linux? No, they just use it everyday, but they have no technical knowledge of it at all.

It's just another piece of software to them. All they know, is that it's cheaper and really reliable.

And that's how it should be.
