I'm not prejudiced -- they both suck!

Over the past few weeks I have been trying to sort out a Linux X-Windows problem. Too many versions, too many updates, too little adequate documentation, too many kids putting out messages on forums, too little design thoughtfulness, too many cryptic names ... I could go on for days.

Prior to that, I was trying to sort out a Window's UEFI dual boot problem. Same for Windows...and add too many internal functions that I don't need...or want, too many hidden telemetry functions that I don't trust, too many legacy functions that really should have been updated, too much being forced to do things MS's way....and on, and on, and on.

I want a clean, simple, understandable, capable, stable system that, in Apple's words, "just works". (I am not a fan of Apple either, but that's another story.)

I find too much of my time is spent nowadays sorting out interaction problems and managing updates. And I'm not getting done what I want to get done.

Not, back to figuring out why my abacus gave me a different answer than my slide rule.
