Well, no, it's not more difficult; in fact, Alex is going to have to take far fewer "instructions" from LUGers to edit his config files than to do simply neurosurgery on lab rats, but still, it is nice to have someone by your side the first couple of times to avoid traps for the unwary and to learn basic vocabulary and good practices the easy and fast way. Plus, with in-person learning, you get multiple sensory mnemonics, such as the feel of the keyboard, the sound of the person's voice, etc. IMHO, all those things add up to help me (at least) learn computer stuff.
