Has Debian always been this crazy and am I so new to this madness?

If you don't like it, you're free to look elsewhere for a distribution
that better suits you.

Are you mr.Debian?  Under what authority are you telling me to either
shut up or leave?  What makes you more Debian than me?  Why don't you
leave if you don't like criticism?

Simple, you are admittedly new. Perhaps it would be prudent to survey the issues, study up some and then ask ~good~ detailed questions. Then act on the resolutions provided you or answer with more details when requested. Linux has always been a "meritocracy". You earn your chops by being a productive member for a longish period of time, who consistently helps others with good solutions. You have done none of that. You might be better served using Ubuntu. Debian is admittedly more tricky and not really suited to someone new. Ubuntu might serve your needs way better and their users are used to holding hands with a new fish. :) Ric
