Thanks for saying that. I agree it's not fair to paint all "newbies" with such a broad brush stroke.
The Linux world would do well to do everything it can to target and attract experienced/power users away from Windows and OS X (such as the innovations made by Pop_OS! WRT gamers, that I mentioned above). It's those users who are generally good with technology who will probably appreciate Linux the fastest. It's those power users who have the patience and curiosity to overcome any barriers of entry into the Linux World (the worst of which is usually getting a Linux installer USB stick to boot on an UEFI-guarded PC, or an EFI-guarded Mac). Once they get past the hell-hound of (U)EFI, and through the Narnia closet of the Boot Menu, then they are pretty much home-free, these days.
