But that type of instant gratification require previous effort (learning
that doing those things is possible, to begin with.) The instant
gratification that I refer to consists on installing the éditeur de
texte du jour, "oh, looks nice", poke it for a minute and decide that it
is okay for you and be happy thereafter, or until you eventually become
tired/annoyed enough and then select a replacement by the same criteria.
