These are Windows users and they figured it out many years ago and today's versions are more friendly than then.

The only operating systems I've ever used are Windows, and while I'm an expert at using THAT system, I feel very intimidated by switching over to Linux. I DO know a lot about computers, besides just how Windows works, but it's a different story with programming. Just reading over linux.com and linux.org makes me feel like I don't know jack about computers. Words and phrases like "kernel," "SCO," "x86," and all the terms on the front page of http://www.linux.com are very confusing.
