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!
