As I get older, I'm coming to the conclusion that Bill Gates
has got a lot of things right.
Many things are set up and set out much better in Windows.
Eg the Control Panel is so much better organised.
My particular bete noir is WiFi (and particularly NetworkManager)
which seems to set out to be as confusing as possible under Linux.
Also CUPS, which seems to be run by androids.
I mean, there are only about 3 possible configurations for a printer,
so why does one have to read an encycopedia to set it up?
