"I have always had a very hard time explaining to my friends and my co-workers why I bother with Linux. They all know that I keep Windows on my machine(for games, mostly), and that most of the user interface in Linux is not particularity well-configured. After all, I'm usually too busy playing games to spend hours tweaking(and sometimes destroying) configuration files :)"
"So, sitting in my favorite seat one day, reading a newspaper, I ran across a full-page ad for a car dealership. Drooling over these ads as I usually do, I noticed that automatic transmission is an option that takes a fair bite out of a student's wallet. I myself drive a manual transmission car, but I'm not adverse to driving an automatic. Personally, I don't think it makes a whole lot of difference."
"This analogy applies well the the Windows/Linux choice, I believe."
