I'm pretty much in agreement with Emerson's comment above. Having been a Linux user for many years myself, I find that it's nearly always new end users that are limited, not Linux. The majority of new users fumble right away without lots of hand-holding, while a few new users come to it very determined to learn, so they work at it, succeed, and have fun, and are able to make it work for them.

Those looking for some help have come to a good place.

I am a newbie and facing so much problems and technical difficulties(even though its good for learning), where as in windows every thing is easy to learn and user dont have to go through so much challenges.
Stare at a "smartphone" lately? it's rather limited.
No challenges = no learning.

Easy or versatile is really depends on how many years you are using that OS. For example, when you start use Windows 8, you have learning curve although we are using Windows 7 for years.
But you will be very comfortable with Andriod(Linux) after you familiar with it for years.
Best part of linux is since opensource, it has strong community which will support you.
Good luck with your linux journey.
