I read the questions and the  replies on this list and find myself lost, and 
wonder if I need a masters in computer sciences to keep up!! hahahaha

And this is exactly the problem I have, and why I generally like to help people 
one-on-one with what works right out of the box rather than getting caught up in 
the more esoteric power user stuff. Linux is no harder to use nor more occult 
than any other OS, it just has this reputation because of lies spread by 
corporate entities that make other operating systems, as well as well-meaning 
people who want everyone to have the power user experience. There's nothing at 
all wrong with allowing others to have the power user experience, which is why 
no Linux distribution will ever take that experience and those abilities away 
from anyone. The problem is that this power user experience is not at all for 
everyone, and many people just want to sit down at their computers and just get 
things done in the most efficient and productive way possible, and GNU/Linux is 
by far the best OS for this as well, despite everything people on this and other 
lists write to the contrary. The only real difference between any Linux 
distribution and any other OS is that with a Linux distribution, you have more 
choices available for any skill level under the sun than you get with any other 
OS, all available from even a choice of software repositories. Whereas this can 
be seen as a bad thing, it is actually a very good thing. No, you don't have to 
have a master's degree in computer science to use Linux, nor do you even have to 
know how to be a fairly competent programmer. You only need to know how software 
repositories work and how to find what you need, which is something that 
GNU/Linux makes much easier than all other operating systems, although some do 
make this easier than others. Still, it's all about choice and all about 
freedom, but many of the available choices actually make it easier to just get 
things done, and we don't have to be absolute beginners in order to get any use 
out of our OS either, since it can grow from the absolute beginner all the way 
up to the most sophisticated power user experience better than any other OS 
currently on the market.
