Which operating system is?  I mean, Linux is a wonderful example.  Caldera
is easy if it detects all your hardware and gets everything right.  How
often does that *not* happen?  In this area Microsoft is about the same as
everyone else.

Of course, the end result once everything is right in Windows is still less
desirable than Linux by a lot, IMHO.
