I've been using linux for about 2/3 years now, mostly around the Knoppix live cd's environment and Mandrake linux, these are user friendly disrto's, however these have helped me get into linux easily, but the fact is, i do not know everything about linux and do not have the comfort level i have experienced with windows xp/vista for so long.
