Devil's Advocate: Is it better to have something that *appears* so easy to 
use that you have complete confidence in it immediately (Windows), or 
something that is so intimidating that after 2 years you still lack the 
confidence to think of yourself as anything but a newbie?

Not debating whether people who think they are knowledgeable in something 
really are -- just in relative comfort/confidence levels.  If somebody 
used Windows for 2 years and still called himself a noob, would it be a 
good thing?
