Debian, Like Fedora, and many others, could *not* be easier to use and
install, and the user gets /choices/! Imagine that! The (E)nd (U)ser
gets to decide how complicated or how simple, how feature filled, or
basic they want their system during the install process, which is, 
by the way, fully interactive and automatic.

And more people should get so confused, and learn a bit about the
machine in front of them. Scary concept, eh? Actually knowing
just a little about the difference between a CRT and a hard drive.

Any version of windows presents terrible, frustrating problems
that need not happen with a well designed OS. Whatever you may think
of Linux, the fact is, Windows has some serious usability, stability,
and security problems.

Mathew
