Yes I know. If I don't have anything to complain about I'm not happy
I guess I'm being unrealistic in ways but I really would like to give windows the heave ho. I just can't at this point. Sometimes I get a kick out of the challenge in making things work. Other times I would like to have something work without going through extremes and since I'm no Linux wiz things can get a bit overwhelming. I do have to admit though Wine is really amazing in what it does.
If I remember correctly I saw something about software (not Free) that claims to run most windows software in Linux and its not virtual software.
All in all I can say Linux has come a long way since first trying it a couple of years ago.
