Linux Frustrations

October 5th, 2009 by Mitchell Lintzen

Just finished about 12 hours of WordPress install on a Ubuntu 9.04 VM I downloaded. The procedure was complicated in that the solution was to support multiple (2) domains but it should not have taken nearly that long. I have a fair amount of experience with Linux although most of it is stale currently. The problem with Linux, as I see it, is that you have to have a wealth of trivial knowledge just to be proficient. Then, to make it worse, there are multiple flavors of Linux and doing stuff is different on all of them. So when you search for answers you’ll likely get 80% inaccurate info.

Okay, I’m done. Now I can enjoy the fruits of my labor. 🙂
