But try this antidote...
One of the things we are learning about the brain which impacts all of 
us, whether we're in our fifties or not, is that an important way to 
keep your brain healthy is to continue all of your life to challenge 
yourself to learn new things. About the time we begin to say, "well, 
I've had enough new stuff, I'm just going to stick with what I'm 
familiar with," our brains begin to shrink as we miss opportunities to 
show ourselves that we're not all washed up and ready to start shopping 
for a funeral plot. The nice thing about Linux is that it let's you 
learn about it, doesn't try to keep you from learning anything, even if 
that's cmake.

And chase it down with this one...
It seems strange to me to hear story after story of the ongoing agonies 
of putting up with all the hassles of Windows, yet even if someone from 
Microsoft broke into homes and smashed computers to bits, the reaction 
is still, "I guess that means I'll have to buy the next version of Windows."
