Not always. I bet you are. But I support a big group of scientists, and 
when choosing Linux for laptop they usually pick Ubintu. Guess why? 
Because all just works, no need to invest (waste actually) their 
precious time into fiddling with the system. They can just do their 
science. I don't intend to blame anybody for what or how they do. I just 
would like everybody to realize the reality.
