No, linux is not simple and easy.

It's just that, when you have a question, there usually is a straightforward (albeit not always easy) way to find the answer.

Most (all) configuration is in plain text files, for example. Each with a slightly different syntax, but most of the time readable (sendmail.cf notwithstanding).

Most programs come with documentation and source code, which is not always easy to read, but at least it's possible.

Windows systems have this maddening tendency to try to protect the user from himself... I prefer a good length of rope, even if it means I will, sooner or later, hang myself.

Most of my code is tested...

Perl is strongly typed, it just has very few types (Dan)
