It takes a month, and about 15 clean do-overs. Each individual element
of hardware and eye/ear-candy is a journey of discovery (except for
things like LPT ports and hard drives which "just work").
But it's worth it, because the other ones that "IJW", you don't have a
clue about how to really make it work like you *want* it to work, and
you have no incentive to learn.
But I agree, it's hard. It takes a month, just to be able to use it,
even if you are an expert in another Operating System and computers in
general, and have had some Unix in college.
