I spend literally 50 – 75% of the time baby sitting and debugging my Linux installation, instead of doing real work on the problem I need to solve.
Just give me an install shield program like we have in Windows any day. I install the program. I use it. I continue to solve my problem. Installing programs on Fedora? That takes me back to 50 – 75% of time baby sitting a series of “simple” installations.
Unreal that people put up with it. I suppose I’ll switch to Mac one day and wonder why I spent so much time ‘under the hood’ of my WinXP box, instead of “getting things done” on my Mac.
