You can add my vote to the growing list of "Confused Linux Promoters"
a.k.a Linux Sys Admin & Users you find it near to impossible to believe
what has happened to Linux. As an early adopter of K12LTSP I was
delighted by the ease and coherent approach to setting up and run a
thin-client system, now with K12linux it seems nothing short of a
miracle if the server doesn't ..... ugh ..... crash, something akin to
the "Blue Screen of Death".
Although I do agree that that Linux has progressed dramatically in a few
short years it has also become a daunting challenge to manage &
maintain. The development of utilities like Yum & Smart do make updates
easier, however when an application doesn't work trying to find the
problem & resolve it is no easier than finding a coherent entry in the
I have always adopted the "KISS" principle maybe it time to take a step
back and try that approach to Linux, least it go the way of the "Dodo bird"
