Odp: Re: Hugin on debian "sarge"
It's not a problem of desktop and GUI.
I could really live with blackscreen and "./configure/make/make install"
instead of "setup.exe". If only "./configure..." was
more-less equally reliable as "setup.exe".
I know it is.... Technically. If you
have all proper dependencies, "includes", "dev" packages
- it works.
But trying to guess what components
I should install to satisfy all dependencies is a russian roulette.
Commercial software is equipped with
clear and intuitive helps and manuals. Free one is not, what is somewhat
obvious. For sure it's a blue ocean for anybody who provides linux based
IT services. Cost of software vs cost of expertise ;)

this is why Knoppix, and Now Ubuntu was created! They target a different
audience. Debian can be used by many folks, but it is not as end-user,
no-command-line focused as the ones mentioned before. It was not
targeted to an average M$ or Mac user. This need is being filled
other distros that want to target those users. Free software allow this
natural competition/free market and it gives users the power to make their
