Transition to *nix is painful for me. I know Windows well and understand its ways very well. I know what happens on my computer inside out, can spot all irregularities and fairly easily dig their causes. I act as a local guru.
On *nix it’s gone. Everything is different and I seem unable to do basic things. When something doesn’t work (and it occurs frequently), I can’t find the cause and can’t fix it. I have to leave with things being broken. It hurts.
Nevertheless, in 10% of cases I try to dig the causes and it alone makes me spend more time reading docs and searching the net than actually using things.
And this is one of things that make me like FreeBSD more than Linux. It has a comprehensive documentation. Thanks to it, I have to ask simple questions less frequently. It’s better to be with my fall alone.
