No offense but this is exactly why people are put off linux. Basically if you even try to learn it you end up getting flamed for being an idiot by elitist snobby linux fanboys. That's why I gave up on it, that and I have better ways to spend my time than memorizing command lines. @Vittorio I haven't reinstalled Vista once since I got it, and it's only blue screened on me once and that was caused by ATI drivers. My roommate's macbook on the other hand has been reformatted several times int he past year because he looks up too much pr0n. So much for Macs being bulletproof.
