I am reminded of a story about a chimpanzee who has only ever known a world inside an underground laboratory.
At some stage, the chimpanzee gets a lucky break and is brought out of the lab in her cage, covered to minimise the trauma of transition.
The cage is put in an open field, and the door is opened. The chimpanzee can sense the open air, the sounds of life, the smells, the heat of the sun... Then there's the moment when the chimpanzee musters up the courage to venture out into this new world. To feel the soil and grass beneath her feet, and test this new found freedom... and the crushing heartbreak as she shrieks with fright, turns around, and rushes back into the oppressive familiarity of her cage, and refuses to leave.
I can't help but wonder if this is how many Windows users feel when they first experience Linux.
