I am very familiar with what he said, but I tried to remain biased and
succinct. I can empathise to some extent, even though I haven't had a
similar experience. I never burn CD's.

The author estimated his skills at $50-100 (United States dollars?) per hour,
but when it came to installing Linux, he was too cheap to order a proper
pack, let alone he whined about 9 CD's that were improperly burned. How
expensive could that have been? I fell sorry for the miser.
