I would make the comparison more to buying a British manual transmission 
car, and driving in the US. It just isn't easy to make that left hand 
work right, and your point of view on the road is different. You can 
adjust, but if every day you also drove a US manual transmission car, it 
would be much harder.

The windows to linux digs don't cut it for me, because they aren't 
anymore different in the gui(kde or gnome) than 2000 to xp.
