I've got actual photographic evidence this time! This is a basic machine I built a while ago for my mother, who used it for web, word, and email (except that being linux it couldn't print and only hooked up to the wifi three boots in five, but that was sort of usable). And then she wanted to watch an episode of Downton Abbey, so I thought I'd patch it up to their TV, which was the usual Linux video configuration painfest. Next, software. Insert the DVD, click on a couple of prompts, and... oh. ...welcome to Linux-world! Screw this. Let's just install VLC. That is actually possible, on Linux, right? ...no, clearly, it isn't. I'm beyond even being irritated by this, anymore. Does anything work, ever, under Linux? And yeah, yeah, I know, the answer will be "oh yes, but you're using Ubuntu Wascally Wabbit with snordflunk 3.2, whereas only 3.1 is supported when there's an R in the month, and... horznflock blimp zwiggle fnord glink rin bloo blop smrgh... shyasoy... shq auisgdu sd97.*^%£$*&^%"£$" But the whole thing's still a joke, really, isn't it?
