I wouldn't call it hostility. More in the sense of a polite - and sane -
scepticism. There's a French saying which may illustrate this:
"Hell is paved with good intentions."
Aside, slightly OT: I share my time between working as a (100%
GNU/Linux) sysadmin and working as a journalist for various IT
magazines. I just signed a contract with the biggest french computer
book editor, for a series of two computer books about Linux, a bit in
the vein of Carla Schroder's and Michael Stutz' "cookbook" approach.
Aim: take the newbie by the hand and teach him - or her - what (s)he has
to know, step by step. All the practical examples (recipes) in the book,
basic as well as advanced concepts, desktop and server configurations,
will be based on CentOS 5.
Preview of coming attractions (scheduled for Feb 2009):
So, to answer the question above: IMNSHO, the best advice comes from an
expert who *can* think like a newbie. (At work, I usually deal with the
opposite paradigm :oD)
