Switching to another operating system requires an adaptation period.Using something new is one that is not embedded in the genes of most individuals. Most people prefer doing things that they are comfortable with and are used to doing it in a certain way. A major part of why we feel Windows is simple and Linux isn't, is because we have become so comfortable and so accustomed to it. I have used Windows long enough that the time I switched to MacOS/Linux on one fine day, I wasn't happy at all. Round and round I kept installing and uninstalling Linux distro's, because I didn't have enough patience to learn everything all over again. But over time, I persisted and now am using Linux 50% of the time.
Some of the Linux distro's are popular because they are beginner friendly and similar to Windows (like Mint and Zorin OS). So the initiative taken by Linux/WindowsFX is commendable, because the decision/willpower to make the transition from Windows to Linux is more crucial than taking full advantage of the power of Linux customizability, flexibility, security and freedom.
I must confess that I do not understand Android very well, because I have an old phone, which is used to call and to be called. My daughters know more than I do because they have Android phones.
Then I would have to adapt and suffer the learning curve, which all systems require
It is true that there are more friendly desks than others but that is a personal matter.
I think the greatness of Linux is that it is different.
