Verry true.  Although I think some of difficulties a newby encounters with lynux 
is because they often build there own system from scratch whereas they probably 
got their winblows system from a venter who just "made it work".  I think if the 
newby would have the same difficulty building windows systems if they could. 
Why else does lynux run on more platforms?
