I'll treat that as sarcasm directed at Linux.

I'm not a college student with infinite time to play with trivia like
video drivers. I left college <big long mumble> years ago and now have
better things to do with my time than repair video drivers because of
fuggheaded policies about "proprietary" and all that. I'd rather earn
the $<mumble> per hour I get for real work. I'm a mercenary with bills
to pay. So nonsense work is something for which I have no time.
