Re(1): Not so difficult but still difficult

All of this depends on your definition of "simple" or "easy." For me, a Linux user of over 10 years, the definition of "simple" means a straightforward system with standard *nix command line utilities with no GUI tools that overwrite good old text config files. I know where everything is, and the FHS is followed. Stuff is where it should be. That makes it easy to use.

For me, fighting with Ubuntu, which just wants to hold your hand and decide what it thinks is best for your setup, is not easy or simple. Ubuntu is a nightmare for me. I find it "difficult" in the sense that my two year old son is "difficult" sometimes.

Slackware = easy
Slackware = simple
Ubuntu = not easy or simple
