@quad It's mostly only too hard for people that want to care how to use it properly, yet don't know how to go about things, having been spoonfed by Windows.
@quad This might be more true than I was initially willing/able to perceive.
@quad I forgot you're in IT support. I had a different demographic in mind entirely, i.e. programmers.
My recent biggest "omg linux why can't I get handy around you" was how I didn't yet know how when an active SELinux is blocking things, it's really obscured when you don't know while looking at the logs and errors.
I was trying to set up RDP to connect from a Windows machine. It took me a week before I figured out SELinux could be the cause, and thanks to a colleague pointing it out even.
