- All Linux instructions give one way of doing things for their author's box. This is invariably different on all sixteen billion distributions, so they then say you may need to use your distribution's method. WTF? You're basically saying there's no way of actually giving instructions which will work for "Linux".
- OK, so you have more (shoddy) drivers than *BSD. However, you keep on changing the kernel interface to these drivers, so the chances of getting a driver to work in the latest version (or indeed any version) of the kernel is fairly minimal. Basically, you have to get the exact version of the kernel for the drivers you want to use. WTF? Can't you just design a decent interface and stick to it?
- There's so much of it. Why do I need "gnome-filesystem" to get a basic minimal no graphical interface installation? Why when I do a ps listing on my minimal box, does it scroll off the top of the screen?
Yeah, go on, defend Linux. I dare you. But until you can write documentation which always is correct and stuff doesn't randomly break, then Linux Is Not Ready For People Who Like Quality And Try To Avoid Wasting Their Time.
