I think Linux is a great thing in the big picture. It's a great hacker's tool and it has a lot of potential to become something more. -Jamie Zawinski

Just a note on the example.  I was asked to edit some videos at work and went through that list but the only thing that really worked was blender and a YouTube tutorial, not to mention if someone sees your screen while you're doing the simplest thing they'll be impressed.

One of the best ways to learn is by BREAKING THINGS... much the same way as I learned how to use Windows. A wise man once told me "If you can learn from YOUR mistakes, you are pretty smart, but if you can learn from someone else's mistakes, you are a genius!"
I think that depends on the mistake, Spatry. I once cut-and-pasted my entire C-drive (ie. all the contents of my C-drive. Files, Folders, EVERYTHING) from my "C"-drive over to my "Desktop". And just by doing that, [and ONLY that,] I SERIOUSLY messed up my computer. (And it took more than just a simple "Hard-Drive-Crash Recovery Disk" and "System Boot Recovery" Disk/Floppy-Disk to get my Windows 98 computer back in working order (let alone PROPER working[/running] order).

After that I decided "never again" will I mess with something without knowing what it does beforehand and/or what it will cause [to happen] on my computer   beforehand ("beforehand" in this latter case as-in "before I actually start doing it").
It's just too much risk.
