I believe that is incorrect. In my opinion, a better explanation for the
difficulty faced by Windows users is that this is a side-effect of
Windows starting life as a single-user operating system. Various
proprietary Unixes -- and all Unixes started off life as closed and
proprietary -- and other proprietary but multi-user OSes, such as VMS,
are more easily configured.
