Hey, its not fud bro. There is a point there (and one that can be subverted<nobr> <wbr></nobr>;)

I've introduced heaps of people in the workplace to linux, and being 'windows' like does offer a disadvantage, in that when people EXPECT windows behaviour , they do it automatically instead of thinking and having a propper menu explore.

The trick with KDE can be as simple as skinning it it a bit wierd (hint aqua skins never fail to impress) and throwing it around abit (but sanely).

That said, gnome 2 seems to be verry mac like , so migrating mac heads might even be better to move em to KDE.

Either way, its not fud. *ITS A LEGITIMATE POINT!*
