Figuring out how to install Linux and a VM is way easier than figuring out how to install Windows and get it to the point where you can be productive.

Seriously, installing VMWare is a piece of cake in Linux. Installing Linux is a piece of cake (well, Ubuntu at least, haven't tried other flavors for years, but Fedora and SuSE must be simple too).

I don't see where the command line comes into it. Download the VMWare install, allow it to execute (in properties), double-click it, enter password... installed...

Honestly I see a lot more people afraid of wizards in Windows that try to dupe you with vague language and tons of options that take your system hostage. In Linux, at least 99.9% of the software you install in the same way and it asks no questions.
