    But people who never used a computer are the most easy part of mankind to
    convince to use Linux. They're not used to crashing computers and are annoyed
    if their computer crashes, unlikely `experienced' M$ users. I remember girls,
    almost with tears in their eyes, `it's not possible that it crashes that much,
    it must be me'...

    Real newbies have to learn how to use a computer anyway. Chosing `start' to
    shutdown your computer is counter-intuitive. Learning simple UNIX commands is
    not much more difficult than learning the M$ logic.
