I have been using different flavours of Linux since slackware 96 over

Hey, me too!
Last week I bought a new PC and decided to try debian so I downloaded
the DVD version 9 and performed a fresh install besides windows 10.
Right from the off, it fucked up, Grubb was a hassle as this was the
default boot loader,(I have always used LILO), it would not find the
windows partition, I managed to fix this. Then it didn't give me a
choice of X windows manager, I was stuck with KDE, which I am familiar
with and am aware of its may limitations and given the choice I
wouldn't use KDE for installation and configuration.
Nearly everything fucked up from the Network install to the gcc make
command, what a hassle and after spending nearly a week trying to get
it all working I've had enough and am not wasting any more of my time
on this awful software.
So thanks for wasting my time Debian and for future reference, go and
I have issues with Debian, but screaming anger fits generally
speaking haven't helped me fix them.
I've tried things I don't like more than once in my life, and
I've rarely found that screaming anger fits helped.
In the Free Software world, the response to something not
working is generally:
1)If you know how, fix it and send the fix to the project so
it helps everyone, or,
2)If you don't know how to fix it, report the problem in a
useful way, so someone else can fix it and help everyone.
