RE: It's Still Linux
That's exactly the point, it's Linux, not Windows - so people who have been using Windows and try Linux may struggle a bit until they get used to it.
When windows users complain about their first Linux experience they tend to overlook two major things..
1) How much they have actually learned about using computers without really noticing while using Windows (and fixing it when it craps up).
2) That they have not really learned much about using computers at all but have learned a lot about using Windows (and fixing it when it craps up).
Additionally they had probably been using Windows for a while before ever having to install it (if they ever have).
People who have never used a computer before will likely find both as easy as the other (if pre-installed) or just as impenetrable (if having to install either).
Windows users moaning about Linux not acting like Windows is like a car driver who buys a motorbike and moans about the lack of a steering wheel and ashtray - they are different things and if you are used to one use of the other takes some learning.
