How to ensure frustration in linux developers

  1. Have a really complicated wireless setup so that it is beyond current linux driver state
  2. Underdocument it
  3. Issue an arbitrary computer and let them install linux on it; do not check to see if anything actually works with linux!
  4. Don't offer any linux desktop support; act like such a request is completely unreasonable
  5. To make 3. worse, make sure you support even such things for windows as changing the color of their icons in the sys tray
  6. Talk a lot about open source and freedom, but laugh at the linux users
  7. Encourage them to get windows

This has literally been my experience for the last 10+ years
