You may think this is going to be another rant on Linux being so good because it is open source and free and Linus Torvalds is god and this and that but it is not going to be like that.

Is Linux really that hard to use?

The most common complaint I am informed about regarding Linux is that it is hard to use. So I am going to compare some common tasks between Linux, windows and macos to see if Linux is really that hard to use. Personally, I find this complaint very puzzling. I will base these comparisons on a fresh install of the operating system as it comes out of the box so to speak.
