I think I disagree about the Linux file system. It would befuddle many people coming from Windows. In Windows, I know exactly where programs will be installed; I had to Google to discover where programs were installed when I decided to go all in with Linux.
That said, now I know where most things go or are supposed to go in Linux.
I think what will bother many users is how different things are in Linux. Not saying they cannot learn, just saying that until a user decided to try, he or she will stick with Windows and play in their long established comfort zone.
