People say Linux is hard to use. This is true, if you’re trying to get the odd piece of software or hardware to work that just doesn’t have a Linux version. Take my current situation: I’ve got a BenQ S2W 4300U flatbed scanner. It’s about probably a bit over 6 years old, and it’s prooving to be a pain to get working in the distro of Linux I use.
Just to use this scanner, I’ve installed Windows 7 on my laptop (on a separate partition).
My initial thought: how many times do I have to boot up to a screen that says Windows 7 is setting something up, and how many times does the system need to restart, before I can actually do some frigging work? Jeez, seriously!
