That's a lot of text. Maybe after I've had my coffee.

-- okay, taken with a grain of salt, you can find some useful info in there.

He's an idiot. Personal perception of how something works does not make it fact.

While he has some valid complaints, he's blowing them way out of proportion. He reminds me of my father who whines about how his computer gets slow or broken because he plays around with things and doesn't understand what he's doing. He then blames the computer rather than accepting it's a PEBKAC issue.  After the bajillionth time of fixing it, I finally told him to learn how to do it himself.

Any OS has its own quirks and issues. Stable is relative. Between Windows, VL and Mint, all 3 are stable and I have no issues at all with them.

Read the comments, interesting! Boy, some of those guys really kick him in the ass. Some of them are very knowledgeable
about what they are talking.

What is PEBKAC?
I'm 70 yrs old, get angry when i open the fridge and can't remember what the hell i was looking for. My wife gave up on reminding me what to pick up at the convenience store. Linux solutions go over my head or i do understand them but plainly i just screw up. I try to keep my mind busy with Linux, and crossword puzzles.

Be patient, once he's gone, part of you is too. Listen to his rant, ignore his ineptitude, at the end, we all face the same end.

PEBKAC - Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair

PEBKAC is what I know as PEBEBE - Problem Exists Between Ears Behind Eyes

All those people suck, they do not know anything right. I'm using Linux with desktop-environment anywhere I could. My last successfull project was to setup fully working Ubuntu on a 8Inch-Win10-tablet right after I finished my galaxy S4 with specialized debian 8 and I'm proud to work at a PC with Xubuntu, Lubuntu, VLocity and Lucid Puppy every day.
I hope one day will come, they just shut up starting to use anything not closed and nailed for paying to use.

Debian 8 on a galaxy s4 is interresting. Do you have a link to a website?

In my house windows 10 but also apple devices are only allowed via a seperate guest wifi network.

Thank you for the link. I have an older LG L3, may be it will work on this device too.
