It's probably just the disappointment that one more windows alternative has apparently not lived up to immediate expectations. I used to curse Linux for being perversely difficult but still wanted to 'do' *nix, so I became a Mac switcher. But even here, there are times when you have to understand the fundamental things that inform hardware, the OS, software and all the relationships between them, in order to make things work, and work well. In the end, RTFM, as much as I have kicked against that expressive phrase, is just the truth, albeit told somewhat harshly at times. I do not doubt that this user had a hard time for the reasons they understood, and maybe they with the guidance given here can transmute this difficult experience into something more positive and productive - I hope so!
