[SOLVED] windows minded mental block

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hello, I've been using windows for years. When I was learning computer repair years back, the person who taught me said that Linux is a waste of time because the money to be made is in Windows. I've tried multiple times to start learning about Linux and every time I just cannot seem to absorb the information due to unfamiliarity, the feeling of comfort residing within the Windows world, and sometimes stepping outside of that comfortable box is mentally awkward. I'm assuming that they're ppl here who have felt the same when first starting their trek into the Linux world. Does anyone (HowTos)
