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.
Oh I agree with that, especially when you are starting out. I remember not having a clue as to what any of those three letter combinations meant at first... and I still have a lot to learn, but I'm at the point where I am enjoying discovering the filesystem and locations... And I love /tmp
Half of my work goes there
