I think the brand new user has the easiest time adjusting to linux.  I 
would highly recommend you give it an honest shot.

Can you explain in what ways you are having trouble with it?  We'd be 
happy to help.  What is the teacher showing you how to do?  That 
information would really help in evaluating what would be the best fit 
for you.


> I'm finding Linix to be very confusing, having only understood computers for a few months. The incompatibility with teachers' computers is adding to the frustration a little too. Microsoft's security, however, resembles that of already digested burritos, making it a risky choice. I value security, but I'm not sure if Linux is for me (at least not right now), but I'm not sure. What would you suggest for someone who has had a computer for only 4-5 months, to return to Windows for simplicity sake, or continue with Linux  for security and tough it out by learning the harder one in the beginning (note that neither of the OS's content is deleted yet)?
