From my experiences, most folks start fiddling with Linux out of sheer
curiosity, as a hobby.
 It takes time, imagination, study, and quite a few screw-ups:) before
one can feel comfortable with an "alien beast" such as Linux, but hey
one doesn't progress if one isn't willing to take a chance.
 And those willing to spend the time do have Much to gain.

The more I use Linux, the harder Windows becomes to use. Point and click
software is too restrictive and difficult to do anything productive
