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:

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.

Best wishes,
