Sorry to have shown doubts. Us guys have to be careful with strangers in
such troll-riddled newsgroups. Like you, I have used all 3 platform, but I
only use Linux and Palm OS at the moment. Mac and Windows machines at the
office keep collecting dust as they have not been properly used in almost
a year. Perhaps being a programmer, as you say, makes Linux appeal to me
more than other platforms. _However_ (a big negation here), I find Linux
to be more user-friendly than some other platforms. FUD has made that very
false fact extremely difficult to wipe off. Command-line 'elitists' and
emacs zealots only help perpetuate the myth. Mac remain the icon of sim-
plicity of use. Judtifiably? No more.
To top up, I will add an arbitrary quote from a nice short essay:
,----[ Snippet ]
| "...with modern Linuxes like Xandros Desktop or SimplyMEPIS, you need
| to put in a CD or DVD, press the enter button, give your computer a name
| and enter a password for the administrator account."
Finally, it appears as though you have not explored Linux in depth for a
few years. I urge you to do so. Everything is plug-and-play. This wasn't
the case a couple of years ago.
