A quick note about Linux: I love it, and I find it very easy to use. However, it isn’t for everyone, and an unfortunately large number of Linux users aren’t the best ambassadors for the OS. Just ignore the holy wars about … um … well, everything, and don’t engage someone who wants to scream about how you can recompile modules yourself and you’re stupid if you don’t. Yeah, it’s awesome that you can modify your installation however you want … but the vast majority of users don’t want to do that, or care about it. They just want something that works, and I can tell you that — unlike when I started with Linux in the 90s — these days it Just Works. And it is awesome.
