Which is why I want to use it.

True and I will eventually get past the minor quirks. As a newbie,
figured I'd point out the difficult portions, things that conceptually
are confusing. I know that after lots of use I'm not going to notice
that it is strange that I have to stand on my head and touch my nose 3
times to open the fridge door. The contortions will seem normal.
Results tomorrow, thanks everyone for the assistance.
