Few years ago I built myself a Linux PC from bits of broken computer discarded by the IT dept here. Not too bad getting the Ubuntu install to work, and I briefly believed the user-friendly-unix hype.

Installing any extra software, however, broke through the thin user-friendly crust and I was back in the trad unix tar pit, (I used to run a few SUN network management stations) slogging through an apparently infinite series of dependencies.

I looked at it again fairly recently with the demise of XP, but it seems that, despite the lack of a commercial motivation, Linux suffers the same feature bloat as Windows, and there wasn't really a useful distro that would run (other than very marginally) on my ageing hardware. I suppose a Leave-it-alonix (LITFAnix?) would lack geek-appeal.

So I think its a snare, and a delusion.
