I think most people consider the things they can use their computer to accomplish as "fun", as opposed to the process of getting their computer into a usable state.

You're right about that, but for it's still fun to mess around with it. Basically because I know what to to, and more importantly what NOT to do.

It's easier for me to do a stage1 install with Gentoo than doing a stage3 install. The latter one means I've got to recompile the base system, before I can get further (due to "funny" use flags) :p

But Gentoo isn't a distro I'd recommend to the newbie.

And most people consider driving their car to places they want to go more fun than tinkering with their engine and suspention, but there are plenty of exceptions.

Oh yeah, owners of old beautiful cars. Or cars in general.

There are many (mostly male persons) who probably spend more time on their cars/bikes than on their wife and families... (sort of sad in a way).
