Re: Make it easy for lazy people? Nahhh!
Attitudes like this is what is holding Linux & Unix back from the mainstream desktop. Most people (like me) don't have the time it takes to become a unix/linux guru. It's not about being lazy or dumb it's about getting a job done as quickly and efficiently as possible. This just isn't the case for most things in linux/Unix. I don't want a relationship with my computer. I want it to be easy to manage and work reliably. Preferably in hours and not days or weeks.
I'm no Microsoft lover but programs like this (and some reasonable documentation) will only help Linux/Unix become more mainstream. For those of us who have better things to do than have relationships with our computers that is. Keep up the good work. And btw, please write some good documentation.
