One desktop running 12.04, a netbook running 13.04 (actually Linux Mint), a home server running 10.04 at my parents' house and a Windows Vista desktop.
How many computers do you have?
1x Computer, 1x Laptop running kubuntu and Debian
Most have never used anything except Windows and whatever's on their mobile phone. They probably take their opinions from what people have read. If they still use Windows and have tried Linux before, then they've gone in there expecting to be experts "because I've been using Windows for years" and then have been burnt by their overconfidence. If you go into Linux realising that your Windows experience means nothing and that you're a Linux noob, then you'll be fine. If you expect Linux to work just like Windows, then you'll think that the operating system is at fault, rather than yourself.
also i have another question, why are some windows users so ignorant about open source operating systems, haha
I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
