Meanwhile back in the real world, it is silly to go on strike and refuse to invest any effort in learning to use a computer competently because it has not yet attained some weird ideal state of effortless perfection. Windows is not easier than Linux. Mac OS X is not easier than Linux. Both Mac and Windows are considerably more limited in what they allow you to do than Linux, not only technically but legally as well. Point and click as a standard of usability? What is this, pre-school? It seems what these folks really want are Fisher-Price computers. Maybe Linux is for grownups, and we should be satisfied with that.
