I tried it. What a bunch of work. I enjoy some behind the scenes work, but I also like to be able to use it. After installing in VMware, I was unable to bring it up to a KDE desktop. The others work, but KDE would be preferred. I would imagine that with enough effort I could get it going, but with no effort I could install a different distro and have it functional. Then I could poke around the innards when I want, and use it to do something when I want.
I don't regret all the work I did to learn the insides of Linux, but I'm also glad I'm not stuck in an eternal need to fix things that are broken and wait for a driver to get written by someone (else). It's enough to drive a person to Apple.
I tried, I'm done. Now I'm going back to Fedora. Have fun. Call me inept.
