Did this surprise you? I'm always baffled when people try Linux and complain that it's like Unix.
As both a user of Linux and Windows...they both have a place for me. I am as comfortable on either one.
Did it surprise me that it brought back Unix nightmares from two generations ago. Yes it did, but then we all have a lot of stuff buried in our unconscious from the past.
On the other hand I thought that Ubuntu would be a lot more user friendly which it wasn't, not by a long shot. I won't even get into the printer driver and networking problems with Ubuntu.
Linux is a basically an attempt to add a user friendly GUI to to an on out-dated computer stone age technology.
Yes there is a place for Linux among the computer geeks and young people who don't know better. There is evidenced by the insignificant Linux share of the home computing market.
