easiest motorshield to program?

I have a adafruit motorcontroller. I thought it was easy to program but, looking at some of the code that others have written it seems really complicated. Please tell me that it just looks hard and is really to program. Also, how do you get librarys thing to work? They have a tutorial but my computer looks different than their photos. If you know of a motorshield that is REALLY easy to program please tell me. Thanks for the help!
