Opinions on windsurfing/kitesurfing

Just wondering what some think about using windsurfing or kitesurfing as sailing "experience". I don't mean to replace actual sail time or anything, but I can get a cheap windsurfing rig until funds come together for a real boat, and until I figure out what I want.
I realize that the rigging and equipment is totally different, but I guess I'm after the 'feel' of it, and maybe windsurfing is better than nothing?
