I do understand her.

This is exactly the reason, why even though I work maninly on Linux and other UNIX systems, I run mostly Windows on my laptop.

I use GNU/Linux since 1994. The first time I installed it did not even recognize my IDE CD-ROM drive, forcing me to use floppy based install.

Since then I have used most of the well known distributions in different types of hardware.

But still, here we are in 2009 and still lots of things require tweaking to get it working properly, or break out of the sudden.

Yes, Windows does have its own share of problems, no need to discuss them. But it works.
