Thank you for sharing that, Charles (I'm the author). Glad to know it

Thank YOU, Mr. Wallen, for your article.
Although I know, this does not belong here, just a word.
I have been trying (STRUGGLING) to move away from MS and get friendly
with Linux for 7-8 years now!
So far with little success. Yet, I still keep trying.

many thanks jack, :-)
I'm not an expert, I start to use linux, basically opensuse, in 2000, and I agree with thomas, my son, my sister, my nephews uses linux, but, if I didn't install it and configure it and solved the problems that rised up and sometimes continues to pop up, they never started to use linux. too complicate... :-)

The same issue afflicts Windows. It's just that Windows usually comes pre-installed. Having performed a lot of installs of both types, I've found the Linux installs to be simpler and a lot faster. Windows may get to the login screen a bit faster but then you've got interminable updates to install with reboots needed between most of them.

As for needing assistance, I find a lot more problems cropping up with Windows than with Linux. And yes, most end-users aren't equipped to deal with them but that isn't dependent on the operating system. However fixing Windows problems is more difficult and sometimes even fruitless (e.g. Windows Updates that mysteriously fail).

I've used Linux pretty much exclusively (except for an income tax program that I haven't got to work in wine) for 18 years. I find Windows to be awkward and limiting. And after looking at Windows 8, it seems to be getting worse, not better.
