You don't have to learn all the Unix commands. You have the option of 
learnning the Unix commands you'd like to learn if you feel it would 
help your work. Which beats That Other OS.

Quantify "easier" for me and I'll tell you whether I agree. Easier for 
someone who's never used the system before? Yes. Easier for someone 
who's used the system for say a year? I don't think so. YMMV.

Yeah, except that's not true.
