Guys, your responses are textbook for why more people don't like Linux. Quite frankly, you're needlessly being dicks to this guy when he's expressing valid concerns. Why not take the opportunity to teach and introduce, rather than try to show how much smarter you are? How is somebody supposed to know or even learn about the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard unless somebody helps them out and points them in the right direction? Trying to show off like that just makes you look petty like the comic book guy on the Simpsons.

I like Linux and I'm liking it more the more I learn about it. You have to admit, though, that the learning curve is quite high and it's not always easy or straightforward to find the answers to questions or how to do something. I've invested a lot of time learning about Linux and that time is paying off. Should somebody have to invest this time all at once on the front end to begin to start getting use out of Linux? Perhaps it might be better to get somebody hooked and then tell them about all of the cool things they can now begin to learn?

Thank heavens for distros like Ubuntu and Mint so that people can see that Linux doesn't have to be so scary. Hopefully they'll get in and discover how fun it can be to learn to configure your computer to behave exactly how you'd like it. I'm really encouraged to see more and more Linux tutorials and help for people just getting started with the OS. We need more of this. For those people that don't want to dig as deeply, though, they shouldn't be left to an incredibly difficult computing experience. Linux is good enough to meet both types of needs.
