Sure, but that's because of familiarity. They are used to doing things "the Windows way", and anything different seems confusing to them. In his article "Linux is Not Windows", Humphries reckons that computer novices find Linux less confusing than Windows power-users do.

What's your favourite? Windows or Linux?
I personally support Windows 'cuz there are many apps that only work with Windows.

Linux. Windows can run under VirtualBox so if it crashes it will never truly die. Whenever I want to do something Dangerous (capitol D) I just clone it and use a new virtual machine.
