//Or you can run Windows or OS X and install programs from wherever and never have it be difficult.... Just a thought.//

Of course, at the same time, you would realise that the practice of "installing programs from wherever" is a paradise scenario for infection by trojans.

It's not FUD - it's a safe practice.
While it may not be true for OO office suite (or signed software downloaded directly from Microsoft/Google/maker/etc), it -is- true for close to everything else.
