I have used Emacs on both Windows and Linux.  It is my observation that
when I am on my Emacs or Windows, I can pretty much forget the platform

The main "issues" are in configuration and setup.  Once that is
surmounted, it is all easy.

You should tell us what exactly broke.  If you are sure that Emacs can
be improved or repaired, file bug reports with M-x report-emacs-bugs

A few words:

1. Don't rely on Third Party libraries particularly from Emacswiki.
2. Emacswiki is a great resource, but it is a big time-waster.
3. Don't try to customize too much.  I told you so already.
