Also the precise reason linux is being so s l o w to be adopted by
many windows users. People converting from windows -DON'T- want to go to
a command line to edit a file no matter how much faster it is. It is all
about proper syntax in the config files which is not guaranteed when
editing by hand. Teach people how to use the system first then teach
them the shortcuts, it is a much faster process.
