    and not just because it's unfamiliar but because shit breaks constantly, configuration is hard to get to, the update mechanism is downright sadistic, usability in most applications (consumer or not) is often questionable at best, yada yada yaa.

I have a hockey puck. It takes fifteen drivers. If it doesn't update properly you have to packagerape the download, extract a .bat file, thrash around in the registry, then run each driver individually, restarting after each one. If any of the fifteen don't work, nothing works.

Windows is a Galapagos operating system. Unfortunately much of the world runs on a remote island in the Atlantic.
