I've been playing with Linux since probably 1995.

Let me think back to the last time I was hacked/cracked..... never! I
suppose it has it's uses but all I want to do is install a simple app.
When I try to do it vie apt, I need to get the GPG key. When I download
the rpm and try to install it that way I have dependency problems. Not
very user friendly and at that point in time I'm not real concerned
about how much experience I have or why things are the way they are. I
just want it to work without aggrevating me.

I would never go back. Didn't say I would. Just wanted to generate some
thoughts. Got a few responses off list from those who wanted to avoid a
flame war. I'm just one user who thinks things should be better for the
casual/newbie user. I am not a developer, and don't want to be, so
basically I'm complaining about something that I would have to rely on
others to fix.

The exact purpose for my post, no need to apologize.
