What Bugs Newcomers About Linux

Gary Parkinson, editor of BBC 5's Wake Up to Money show, takes his first dive into Linux and reflects on what keeps him from loving it—terminal commands, iPod problems, and, of course, hit-and-miss wireless. You've read why your fellow readers switched to Linux; do problems like Parkinson's explain why you haven't given Tux a try?


    I'm puzzled as to which "music management software" he is using. amarok has synced with ipods for quite a while now (I don't have an ipod, but there are plenty of sites on the internet describing how people use amarok to sync with their ipods).

    I will agree hit-and-miss wireless is a problem, there are so many chipsets with bad/no drivers.
