Sometimes the answer with bad software is to debug it, other times the
answer is to throw it away and start again. Few of us would put up with
a seriously broken new car, or sofa, and the right response is that it's
designed badly, not that we'll just have to get used to it. If the
response to a complaint is that we can fix it with a minor adjustment,
you'll (probably) accept that, /if/ it works. If the response is
something that just leaves you in the lurch, well /you/ leave /them/.
While a developer may think it's reasonable that users of an OS like
Fedora ought to be prepared to handle a few hurdles, only a few of us
are prepared to be jumping through rings of fire, and dealing with a
computer where the steering wheel has come off.
This isn't Windows, and we're not Windows users.
