As several people have pointed out in the past, if you had to
install and setup Windoze on a machine that had been pre-installed
with Linux, *that* would be a pretty difficult task too.

What makes Windoze (relatively) easy to set up is only that
it comes pre-installed on pretty much any computer you buy,
and you know in advance that all of your hardware is guaranteed
to be supported.
