No wonder Linux, Ubuntu and its I’ll have never taken off, other than in the embedded world. I’ve got a great microprocessor that it’s a brick at the moment. I’ve taken several days to figure out how to read image the system so I can restart it.
Because I accidentally blew it away.
But alas I am no closer than I was before. The acronyms and the old “go build it yourself” and “oh go find all the tools on your own” always makes a learning curve vertical.
It may be free but it costs so much blasted time when you first start on the stuff that it’s really not that great.
If you’ve got weeks to fool around and do things that all sounds fine but when you really got to get something done, it’s definitely a horrible choice to learn on and start with.
