LinuxNewbie.org: Hello there, I am a Newbie

[ Thanks to Sensei

“For every one of you enamoured with the command line, there
are 10,000 of us who only want to “push the button”. Linux would
own the world right now if only someone understood this tiny

“I am retired. So I do have time – if not inexhaustible funds. I
have been trying to successfully install and use Linux since the
first “User friendly” attempts were made. I have a lot of USER
experience. I have fought with USER levels of Concurrent DOS,
MSDOS, Unix and every iteration of Windows.”

“As of this morning, I have not been able to *ever* successfully
install a USEABLE Linux system. Latest attempts being Mandrake 7.2
and after great frustration, RedHat 7.0. Which went on like a dream
compared to the ” user friendly” M72.”

“If the code can be cut to setup the primary install
requirements, why can’t it be set up so that I can simply download
a program and install it exactly as the Primary Install does it?
