It's too hard is no excuse

[ Thanks to Locutus for this link. ]

"Linux is too hard. Linux is too different. Linux doesn't have this or that program. Linux is not compatible with x or y or z. Linux is blah blah blah....

"People come up with all of these reasons to explain why they don't use Linux. But really they are not reasons at all but simply excuses for laziness. You might even think that with all the tripe that is trotted out that most people don't have the intelligence to be able to use Linux.

"I don't believe that is true any more than you do. People are intelligent. Yet, when it comes to computers, any bit of related knowledge, acumen or willpower seems to be sucked into some interspacial black hole. People can run companies, countries, teach high level education or perform complex tasks which save lives and increase our standard of life. However, put these people in front of a computer and they can't, for the life of them, find the file they just saved. It is like they turn into a drooling 12 month old baby as soon as they touch a keyboard. Yet, in all other things electronic they are like ducks to water."
