    While Ubuntu has greatly simplified the installation and use of Linux on the desktop, it is the title of this article that has to go away for Linux to appeal to the masses. Anytime someone needs a instruction manual to install software or drivers, they have hurt the forward movement on Linux.
    I installed Ubuntu as may latest test of a full migration to Linux. The first negative on it came after a few days when I turned the PC on and received an error about Power Management not being installed properly. This kept me from logging in with the Gnome GUI desktop. The troubleshooting of this problem required me to drop to a command prompt and know more than I should need to know to try and fix it. Further more, after getting help via an Ubuntu IRC, in the end it could not be fixed and I had to reinstall Ubuntu. Say what you want about my comments, Linux is great, but in order for it to take over market share from the likes of Microsoft, it will have to be after it can be fixed from the GUI, and not require anyone to know anything about dropping to a command line and typing long perfect syntax instructions.
