I wasn't going to get onto this thread, cos I'm a Mac person struggling
with Linux and getting by, not an IT professional.
LINUX IS NOT EASY.
The trouble with this list is that nearly everyone is an IT pro, and has
no idea what it's like to struggle with config files and arcane syntax.
When running apps on a linux desktop distrib. (that has yet to be
invented) is as brain-dead as installing on a mac, then apps will follow
like day follows night. Until then, Linux is a fabulous server OS and a
marginal desktop for the boffins.
