It is all useful to learn and play with different systems and ideas
  rather than being centric on understanding one only.

Though, I see a lot of experienced users who just get rather fed up
  with Windows =).  But now they are getting fed up with the buginess
  and ethical-choices of Canonical/Ubuntu ...  But at least this is
  not a closed market, things can change etc.

I note, this set of articles, is quite useful, and also has
  an excellent 'why would you bother'...


But, I don't want to perpetuate the myth that you need to
  use the command-line to manage such a system.  It is perfectly
  possible to find a distro that works for you and use all
  the graphical frontends.

Its' just useful, and its' easier to hand people a command
  rather than a long string of clicks and windows-boxes to
  use and so-on, etc...

Good luck =)
