When my friends ask me, "Why the fuck do you use Linux? Why not just use Windows like everyone else, it's so much easier ... " I reply "Exactly. It's easier. I like doing shit the hard way."
I agree with that statement. My fiancée thinks that I am insane for even bothering with linux. She's says things like: "If it's so damn hard to get the wifi card working right on that machine, why don't you just use windows?" Which I would reply with "Because once I get it working, I know that I got it working. I didn't use an executable to figure it out for me."
Yeah but why reinvent the wheel all the time when you dont have to? Wow you can spend all this time to make a cheap piece of hardware working on a free OS.. ugh I guess I felt the same way about hacking the xbox but at least that changed what the xbox could do. I mean really how many damn wardrivers that want to be good security wpa experts are there?
