I've always thought that the learning curve for Windows was far worse
than Linux.  You don't have forums like this one, when I used it.  Sure,
there are ones, but there was a lot more of the blind leading the blind,
some of the most bizarre registry issues to deal with, expensive
magazines that were far more about advertising things to waste your
money on than they helped you...

All mail to my mailbox is automatically deleted, there is no point trying
to privately email me, I will only read messages posted to the public lists.

George Orwell's '1984' was supposed to be a warning against tyranny, not
a set of instructions for supposedly democratic governments.
