Microsoft has made a business out of this. :-)
To be honest, I'm amazed at how computer illiterate most college graduates are. They think they know computers if they can find the "Start" button and do a few Excel spreadsheets calculations. It will probably never change. You have the basic old "left-right" hemisphere separation in people, and currently the world is dominated by intuitive types. They don't care how computers work, they don't care about numerical analysis, (except counting money), and to them, computers are just a tool. That is why Microsoft is so successful.... it allows the "point-and-click" types to get results, without knowing what is going on under the hood.
I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth.
