"he big trick to learning to like Linux is to commit to stick
with it. There are so many cool features in Linux itself and the
applications, but learning them takes time. Many things are more
"techie" than in Windows, which can mean they're more powerful but
can also mean there is a greater learning curve.
For example, my Dad could probably be happy using Ubuntu if he
only had to install software from the Ubuntu marketplace or event
the Synaptic Package Manager but if he needed to install something
manually (as I'll write about shortly) and have to open a shell or
a Nautilus instance as super user, figure out permissions and run
programs without clicking on them, well those things would probably
be a show-stopper.
