Ohh my old "Rival r"

"The only people I know are comfortable and used with Windows UI is power users. people that won't switch without the apps being ported, regardless of what kind of UI Linux used."

I agree with you 50-50

"I think you are part of a small niche. People who like Windows UI, "not power users", and want to switch to Linux."

Come again? You are calling me Windows newbie? Mate in case you didn't know, I am a software developer. I develop software for Windows with MS's MFC and Borland C++ Builder. I have also developed software for KDE but never published it.
