This is a rant. If you are easily offended then don't read this. I repeat. Don't read this. I am going to be ranting about how fan boyz and girlz go on and on and on about how easy it is to install programs in windows and how hard it is to install programs in Linux.

Many times it is their biggest argument about the superiority of windows. Programs are easy to install. You don't have to CMMI (Configure,Make,Make Install), you don't have to use the command line. All you have to do is click next and the program is installed.

Bull! I just recently installed MSDE and its associated web data admin on a freshly installed, fully updated windows XP. It was a pain. Not because it was hard. Anyone with half of a brain could install it. It was a lot of wasted time and effort for such a simple task. To install these two programs I had to follow the following steps. Note: These are Microsoft programs written my Microsoft and supplied by MS's web site.
