Nah.  Real techies only use the commandline - and they'll be fine with 
any Ubuntu.  Forget the gui and just do 'ctrl-alt-f2' (or f1) and do all 
your work there.  Going from dos to Windows kind of spoilt it for me 
just the same as when I stopped photographing in B&W and doing my own 
processing and moved to colour.  Mind you, now in this digital age, I 
can photograph in B&W and process my own .... ;-)

But I do take your point.  I think obsessive-compulsive describes your 
group 2 best.
