Grammar. The difference between knowing your shit and knowing you're shit.

Blimey, It is easy.

However, coming from (And being spoilt by) Sony there is a massive difference on how this is achieved.

I managed it within the 10 mins it states and although it is the first time I've achieved root and unlock through command prompt instead of a toolkit (Although available now) there was a sense of achievement doing it this way. ( It kind of felt 'old school')

To put it into a sentence. Root and Unlock is stupidly easy with the nexus 5!
