You're painting a picture of Linux (which is not an OS but a kernel)
as if it was the ultimate eye-candy, graphics-fanboi OS, which is not.
Under the hood, it can be as arcane and obscure as any old-school Unix
clones. Outside the *BSD bubble, 99% of IT end users regard Linux as
"the" difficult OS. Some people find Windows 10 difficult. Some people
find using an Android smartphone difficult. Yes, we may think they are
stupid but they are the ones who pay our wages.

Just slap Mate, KDE or Gnome on any OS and it will make it more
