Why can't they ship their OS with proper documentation in

I learned more about GNU in my first 6mos of use than I did in the 7 previous years of working in Windows (before that it was DOS...).

The hardest thing is GUI's, since every widget set has its
own peculiarities.  The next hardest is audio and other forms
of multimedia.  Usually it isn't worth trying to solve this
problem unless you have something like Java AWT around
to take care of the icky details.

But unless another project does this work for us, we'll
eventually need to address the hard issues of creating
portable free libs for these things.

Unfortunately, that's one of those "Do I have to [implement a portable GUI library] mommy?" things. ;)

Oh, I've seen copies [of Linux Journal] around the terminal room at The Labs.
