Not having a green start menu hinders wide-spread adoption. I couldn't care less. Their computer probably came with Windows and I make plenty of money solving their issues.

Wahhhhh.... you use a new product you might actually have to "learn something" and have a basic understanding of computers. Trying to mimic learned tasks on Windows does no good with other OS's and I take offense to taking UNIX and making it more Windows-like.

The fact that UNIX isn't Windows-like or DOS-like is one of the reasons I've stuck with it since WinNT 3.51 was still in beta.
