I'm sure it's a zillion times better than windows at managing a computer. But boy is it hard work trying to *do* anything in it.
I'm writing this having spent the better part of a day - unsuccessfully - trying to make a tiny change to a Thunderbird plug-in. I have the source. I've learned how it vaguely clicks together. But every step of the way I'm hitting out of date documentation, and things which just don't work. XULExplorer for a start.
I have just finished the tutorial
only to discover that DOM Inspector (the de factor tool the say to use) is obsolete - with no hint as to whether it will ever work again.
I will make my change - old school if necessary (back to coding with notepad). And then tell nobody about it.
here endeth the rant.
