Being a Windows user for 10 years, I can't understand why it is so difficult to install and uninstall programs on Ubuntu. I installed it to try it out, and must say I find it very usable for web surfing and email. But installing third party software is the suck. I installed Google Earth and it doesn't work, and can't seem to get it uninstalled spite serious Googling. Getting my PVR 150 TV tuner to work may be a task as well. It may take me 10 years to get the hang of Ubuntu. ETA: And what is with this "Terminal" thing? Seems to be like cmd in Windows, but even less user friendly.....Rant off.
