I have been trying (STRUGGLING) to move away from MS and get friendly

So far with little success. Yet, I still keep trying.
this makes me wonder what the top two or three things are that people
find hard in adopting Linux.
I don't want to count the yrs I've used Linux. I was never a full-time
user of Windows, I used OS/2 before Linux and Desqview on some version
of DOS before that.
for the most part I'm barely aware of the operating system: launch a
program and work or play is my mode. never gave up command-line habits
either, the pictures confuse me like holding a conversation via charades.
The top reason people find hard is almost certainly that you have to
install it. Windows comes pre-installed and there are always those nice
people in the <big box store service desk> who will reformat your drive
and reinstall Windows for only a small charge once it gets messed up. :)
The other two reasons are:
- package <whatever> that I depend on only runs on Windows, and
- game <whatever> only runs on Windows.
All three problems are going away slowly but not without M$ fighting back.
