It depends on the user. The old adage goes, "Unix is user-friendly -
it's just selective about who its friends are". The user who is willing
to climb an initially steep learning curve in return for more power,
flexibility, and stability in the long term, as well as willing to do a
*lot* of reading, will probably get a lot out of Linux. You can't just
expect to be able to run it competently straight out of the box, though.

I got tired of that a while back. :)
(I anticipate a lot more people switching to Linux now after the damning
findings against Microsoft in its court case ...)
