and thus increases developer reluctance.  The reluctance is already
fueled in part by all the things you mentioned, and the difficulty of
getting it set up.

its the same for any application. apps are always developed with a
particular look and feel. unless they are build to look native
wherever they run.

yes setup should ideally be just a single copy. from installation of
the entire system to application updates. although im very biased
towards a document centric paradigm where this issue is simply

things i hate about my linux pc:

2. keeps asking about filenames and directories
3. does not remember what i was working on yesterday
4. does not remember all the changes i have ever made
5.cannot figure out necessary settings by itself
