Do you mean compiling programs from source is a bit of a hassle?
If so, consider the options you had in Winders. You might not have
installed and repaired operating systems as some of us have done,
which is quite different from buying a box with Winders pre-installed.
Linux is the kernel, which is the basis for an open source operating
system which gives you configurability, customization, and total
Winders gives you Bill Gates piece of junk operating system, and
some companies software designed to work with it. You can't
change a stinking thing about them, and have to pay them to get
them to fix their broken software. Of course, they always have more
errors with the new version you paid for.
Get Linux ... learn some stuff ... get free!
You want to learn what a real hassle
is? Start building and
repairing Winders computers. Picking out the hardware, assembling
the parts, installing the software, maintaining the system for people
who don't know anything except click click click -- who for the most
part use their index finger to finger a mouse rather than their brain
to think. That's hassles, mate!
