Hi :) I think that's a tad unfair.  People have grown-up learning
MS's ways of doing things and so "intuitive" means doing things MS's
way, ie the ways that encourages a proliferation of viruses and
causes slowdowns and encourages bad-habits.

Intuitive? Hu. From Wikipedia: "Intuition is the ability to acquire knowledge without inference or the use of reason."

I do not know of *any* computer or computer program that can be run without inference or the use of reason.

Any time I hear "intuitive" within the IT context, I jump to a gun.

A blank page in a Writer document looks like it's going to be fairly
easy to write in and it is as long as people can avoid the bad habits
they have picked up and perhaps even quickly skim through some of the
official documentation or look things up in it if their first few
tries are not instantly successful

To do that, they need training. Much training. First to forget that a computer is no typewriter, then to change their (bad) habits.
