I feel like the real concern voiced by Valent Turkovic has been missed
by all three of the responses I saw. What are we expecting the average
Joe who wants to try out this cool new thing called Linux to feel? He
can load it up and see a pretty twisty graphic but then can't get the
simplest thing like web browsing to work without installing a lot of
extra packages that are only obvious by a long Google search, abuse on
the forums (RTFM) or a previous experience.
That is a useful thing to keep in mind but when you are using test
releases coming across bugs is not unexpected. Working with developers
by reporting those bugs is more useful than calling things a disaster.
