This maybe an issue for those of us who didn't grow up with computers, but
what about those who have grown up using computers since they started
elementary school?  I wonder if the use of this technology will be as
natural to them as reading books to gain knowledge is to us?

It doesn't bother me at all really, though I should perhaps note that
use a good quality 17" monitor at 640x480 and usually read with the
seatback reclined.  I suspect eyestrain could occur if one tried to read
tiny blurry type all day.
