THe initial learning curve is almost vertical, but when you get familiar with it, there is nothing you can't do.
In short it's worth the struggle.

Currently using openSUSE.

Good Luck Tony
It's not that Tony had difficulty with the learning curve but the thing is, he tried plenty of distros but because of his 64bit computers, not many of these distros work. I know that Tony will give Linux another try if there is a distro specially designed for 64bit computers but sadly, much of today's Linux are still for 32bit computers and those designed for 64bit computers are still not perfect.
