Comment: Installation (Score 1) 891

by deadkennedy (#29398085) Attached to: Why Users Drop Open Source Apps For Proprietary Alternatives
I haven't actually dumped an open source application in favour of a proprietary alternative because it was difficult to install. I could, however, completely understand why some users after attempting to install and configure open source applications would make the move. The installation and initial configuration experience is the first impression and is important to get right. It is the first impression the software gives as to how good/usable/stable it really is. How can you get feedback regarding other aspects of the software if they can't get past step one?
