Thank you for the information. I'm sure to take it to heart and use it everyday. Oh, wait. No, I won't, because I want to USE my computer, not constantly tweak it.
I could build x against y, indeed. Why not just learn programming, start coding applications from scratch and start solving all my Linux problems myself while I'm at it? I HAVE taken the time to educate myself on several issues just to get Linux running on various machines. Sometimes I was successful, others not so much. I've wasted hours, searching countless forums and articles, on seemingly simple problems with no straight-forward answers. That is not my idea of freedom-- being held hostage by the anarcho-communist structure of Linux. I'll exercise my freedom of choice and choose something that solves my problems sooner rather than later. If the Linux community can't tolerate ignorant users, then I'll stay blissful along with millions of others, thanks.
