Well put. And I would add that because of the nature of Linux, it really is up to the end user to sort out the problems they are having with a particular configuration on a particular machine, because realistically, they are the only person with access to it. This is the "price" you pay (or should I say the price you *don't* pay or the price you pay for not paying) when you choose Linux. 

I feel for Richard, because his adventurous spirit and drive to make things work is inspiring. Still, at the end of the day Devs who make their living at this sort of thing require a "stove that just works."

I don't want to have to stop what I'm cooking to figure out what's making the kindling wet and to sharpen my flint before I can relight it -- I'd like to just turn on the stove and concentrate on how much garlic to add.
