|     * Find the programs on the web site.
|     * Download them.
|     * Run MSDE to find that it just unpacked itself to a directory.
|     * Go to that directory and run setup.
|     * Find out that I had to supply a command line switch.
|     * Go to the command line and run the setup again with the command line

|  Just for kicks I went through the equivalent procedure in Kubuntu.
|     * Start up Adept Manager.
|     * Put the term "postgre" in the search box and wait a couple of seconds 
|       for all postgresql programs to list. 
|     * Choose install for postgresql as the closest thing to MS's MSDE.
|     * Choose install for postgresql-client just because I felt like it.
|     * Choose install for phppgadmin as the closest thing to MS'S web data 
|       admin. 
|     * Click on Apply Changes
|     * Start making a cup of coffee while everything is downloaded and 
|       installed. 
|     * Close Adept Manager after everything was installed.
|     * Finish making my cup of coffee and drink it while playing with the 
  |     database.

| I then click print in Evince and out comes the document.  Done.  You know, 
| people still insist on telling me that they don’t want to run Linux because 
| its harder, or that Windows XP just works for what they want to do.  Are you 
| kidding me?  Just this evening it took me twice as much work to *try* and 
| print something, which never worked.  Ubuntu “just worked”… go figure.    


The Perception that Windows is Easier to Use than Ubuntu

| I've often read in these forums Ubuntu new users claiming
| in a matter-of-fact way something along the lines of "Who
| are we kidding? Just face it--Windows is easier to use than
| Ubuntu." It's that obvious, is it? And, of course, it makes
| anyone who disagrees look like some kind of crazy Linux
| zealot.
