I don't know about newbie hostile, but I would say it is definitely a UNIX 
guru environment.. just trying to download was a frustrating 30 minutes. 
there was no "*.iso" like 99.999% of the other distros use. Then it took me a 
while to figure out if it was even going to install/run an X environment. 
Don't even ask about a LiveCD..:)
 and I've installed UNIX from 36 floppy disks!
