Sometimes all one needs is software that just works, behaves nicely and never spies on you. This is just the start which is not debatable. Remember though that for the modern system of this kind to treat you like a grown up, you actually do have to become literate in basic math and computing principles. Should not be too hard since this software helps you with that as well — all you need is faith that it will be worth it. Every computing cycle lasting about a decade or two brings some change. It also brings a lot of opportunities to learn and grow.
