Computers Too Hard To Use...

There is an interesting discussion on Slashdot Can Ordinary PC Users Ditch Windows for Linux?.

The problem with most of the comments is that they fail to take into account two key facts: most users don't know how to use/install Windows to start with and what they do know is often so illogical that they need to unlearn it to make sense of Linux/Unix/Mac.

It's in Microsoft's commercial interest to keep their user base ignorant, if people realised how much of a ride they were being taken for then they may not be so keen to pay out the huge sums to Microsoft every year for more old rope.
