Well, see, Linux is amazing, because you can dig down into the innards of the machine and rearrange/reconfigure anything you want!

On the other hand, Linux is annoying as hell, because you HAVE TO dig down into the innards of the machine, and rearrange/reconfigure EVERYTHING to make it work properly.

Ubuntu (et al) make the desktop side much simpler, but yeah, the server side is still a pain.

I think what they really need is a decent command-line text editor. I look at that whole war between VI and Emacs, and honestly, I hate both of them. I don't want to memorize a whole new language of keyboard shortcuts just to edit a text file. I just want the equivalent of Notepad. When I was using Linux heavily, my go-to text editor was Pico. It just worked. Simple. Quick. Easy.

Sorry, tangential rant there... But yeah... Linux is a pain. It's powerful, but that power has a price. That's the reason I have two Linux boxes at home (One repurposed desktop, one Raspberry Pi), but never actually use them... Windows is just simpler.
Proud to have finally moved to the A-Ark. Which one are you in?
