Well, what you are overlooking is the fact that even Windows windows are a tool.

DOS is not flexible unless you know how to use it to its extent, thats why you find yourself confused at the shell.

Display settings and program installation can be done using GUI tools by most distros.

yeah, linux has really nice GUI tools... for example, synaptic...

with synaptic, you can install/uninstall/upgrade any package you want with a couple mouse clicks...
