Recently I decided to introduce a friend of mine to the wonderful world of Linux, and like when someone moves to a completely new town, you have to help that friend get around town and learn about how things work in this new town, where are all the places of interest, etc. And so it is, in someway, when someone decides to make the move to a new OS, they have to get used to the new environment and make new habits, especially regarding Linux.
