No, it's not an end-all way to make Linux noob friendly, I was just tossing out the idea. Probably not a good one, though, since symlinking /Documents and Settings to /home is probably intellectual property infringement to MS.
This is just silly, but I'm sure you're right about that. Microsoft is becoming silly with its "intellectual property". Can you tell me this term was invented first? The only thing I consider wrong related to intellectual property is copying something and then giving you credit for it, just like CherryOS did with PearPC. About the latest news on Microsoft embracing SuSe, I read somewhere that Microsoft said the licensing would not respect their intellectual property. I mean, Microsoft, stop whining and being a paranoid about everybody stealing the creations of your evil mind!
I really don't care if Microsoft's goal in life is to make the most money out of honest people who don't know a lot about computers. I hate them already. But things that really piss me off is having control on very widespread file formats, such as .doc, and not releasing any documentation about it. I mean, I understand that Microsoft did create the format, but no one is gonna say "hey, I created .doc, not you" and "steal" .doc. In the case of the average joe writing something in Microsoft word and then sending it to other people, his work is his intellectual property, so why should programmers be forced to reverse engineer the format first so that I can read it with some free software? The format is MS's, but not the work. Microsoft definitly should put information on formats publicly accessible, so that programmers could write better support for it faster (best example is NTFS).
Microsoft, I hate you, with your silly intellectual property.
