No way around the learning curve but to learn it. It's just better to
get people to understand that. There are a lot of real valid reasons to
do so including the better security but I think the best reason for a
mission field use is it's just loads more stable. I mean think about
it... Would you rather be ministering or reinstalling windows / virus
updates, etc, etc, ad nausium.

There's nothing to learning Linux really except 2 things.. You must
read, and you must use it. If there's a task to be accomplished, *find*
the Linux way of doing it rather than resorting to another OS. That
forces you to learn, and being a Christian as very similar to this
philosophy. You are *always* learning and growing.
In the Beginning there was nothing, which exploded - Yeah right...
