I have a feeling people find Linux hard is because most of them have grown up with Windows. So they already feel at home on one system. I've got a classmate who's hardly ever seen Windows. He's grown up with Slackware Linux and he can't even change the screen resolution in Windows, but he can work magic on his Linux box.

Linux is not hard to use, just get a good distribution like ubuntu or debian and install it, they all come with a desktop so there is not a lot you need to learn.
That's correct. They are the only distros I had no trouble with. I have three partitions - Win98 (old dos games), WinXP (current games) and linux just for fun

Lets see I love windows because I grew up using it (our first pc had win95). Also Bill Gates isn't an idiot he is the master mind behind dos and windows I you think windows users are lazy because they can't be stuffed learning linux then think about it windows is more popular because it can run lots of games and other things like that and it comes oem on all new coputers from the common brands eg HP or Dell. I am a windows user and if you thing because I use windows I am automaticlly lazy the I shall leave these fourms. :ranting: :not_ok:

I suppose you're right about that. Although, strictly speaking, I hardly "grew up" with Windows, as my family didn't actually own a PC until I was twelve or thirteen. So I suppose for me it's force of habit, really. And a complete lack of trust in my computer skills, which isn't entirely unjustified.

Actualy windows was "stolen" too. Atari and Apple already had GUI OSs well before Windows. When was the first Windows? 87?
