The author had a decent *NIX pedigree, but parts of his tale where just 
bizarre. He never installed the Linux compatibility package, then 
proceeded to complain that Linux compatibility didn't work. This 
trickled over into complaints that OpenOffice for Linux didn't work, 
and that printing in general was a nightmare because he installed the 
Linux CUPS package instead of the native version. And his account of 
sysinstall wiping out his logs is downright puzzling.
