16. Linux has evolved substantially since the command-line installs
and I also was very frustrated with Linux back then.

I've recently installed Ubuntu version of Linux on an HP Pavilion computer which only had WinXP drivers dedicated for the motherboard. Since I didn't want to buy the XP operating system, I downloaded Ubuntu off the net. It actually had built-in drivers in Linux to replace the XP drivers which you had to have to get the motherboard to work. Self-installing, easier than installing Win98 for me. I'm basically 'sold' on Linux and Ubuntu now.
