Sorry, but it's true. You can either spend thousands of hours managing Linux and it's terrible interfaces, or get Microsoft that does it already for you.
2004's Mandriva+KDE's interface was superior to today's Windows 7's interfaces; it didn't get in the way of what you wented or needed to do. The layouts were logical. Microsoft's are seemingly random. What's more, Windows' interface changes from release to release so you virtually have to learn how to use a computer all over again, as I found out yet again yesterday when I bought a new netbook with Windows 7 on it. Gad, but I hate Windows 7, it's the worst version of Windows I've used yet.
Even back in 2004 I'd install Mandriva dual-boot in computer-illiterate friends' computers when I got sick of cleaning out their malware, and I'd disable networking in Windows. None of them had any problem whatever doing anything on it after that, and all of them loved Mandriva. What's more, I spent a hell of a lot less time supporting their machines.
Now tell me, Mr. Troll, why is it that when I tried to connect to the wifi at the local bar it would connect to the network, but not the internet*, gave me the reason of it couldn't find the DNS server without giving me any way of supplying the server's address (I know the owner so could have easily gotten it), yet a woman there with an iPhone was able to connect to the internet via wifi with no problem at all?
You, sir, are abysmally ignorant.
*I found out later in the evening there was a problem with the bar's wifi router, but it didn't get in Apple's way and I'd bet it wouldn't get in Linux's way, either.
