In march 2000 I got a computer for the first time. I also used one for the 
first time. (part of an estate) I had MS for three months and found out about 
open source on the WWW and installed my first linux (redhat 5)
Never went back to MS and made it stand alone. The funny thing is I am 46
and I really don't know much about the whole thing. But I would never go back 
to MS (it is a matter of principle I quess) So for me the best route is the
"easy to use linux distro's"  In terms of "open source" I think SuSe isn't 
the best. But I couldn't handle a kernel if it spit me in the face :-)
I am thinking we are going way OT here
