Not that difficult
Getting into something is sometimes easier said than done - there are so many distributions, the explanations of friends are very cryptical, the tools are unfamiliar. The well visited lectures of our beginner's forum show that the introduction to and the handling with Linux is not that difficult. The presentations are comprehensible and there is often room for discussions. We have noted that also old stagers often pay a visit to the beginner's forum and are surprised by a new amount of knowledge.
