A user should be able to install Fedora Core 4 and go grab the latest Firefox release from Download.com and have it work without the need for finding and installing compat-libstdc++ or whatever.

Bullsh..,the user only has to download a *.tar.gz,unzip it in some folder in his/her home directory and run ./firefox-installer and link the icon.Now how easier can it be than that i ask you?

A poster allready mentioned it in some other thread:usage doesn't come free with any other OS either,you have to get familiar with the basics.This is true for Linux,OSX and a lot of other OS's windows incl.
