    Linux needs to be more (new) user friendly.

    For a complete noob like myself, Linux is still way too technical to be user friendly. It really needs a dumbed down version for complete noobs to get the feel of before embarking on the teckie trek of the full blown versions. However, this version would still need to have full functionality to make it useful and worth trying out.
    I thought, Ubuntu, Mepis, Mandriva, Mint, Progex, fit all those areas fine. Its not easy though, to teach an old dog new tricks. Being an old dog, I can say that.

    Sorry to read that you find Linux still too technical. I don't have the same experience. I am mostly using Ubuntu and like it far more than Windows. The funny thing is that I never had to use the command line to do something, everything was "point and click". I never had to install special drivers too.
    However, I know that drivers are an issue still. Not because of Linux, but because the producers refuse to produce a Linux driver and so the community has to do a lot of work to make one. That it's a bit difficult to install such a driver is something I can live with.
    About the file system: in my opinion the Linux file system is very understandable and flexible, but surely it's different from Windows. But I'm sure you didn't get it all when you first used Windows, so give it some time to get used to Linux. In a few weeks you will get used to it.
