Agreed. After I don't know how long I've been using email, both GUI and CLI clients, I've found the only feasible way to do it without clutter is to use mutt. When something stupid comes in that can only be read with a HTML client as it has no text/plain part I can funnel it through lynx. I've not found any web client to help at all helpful when it comes to processing a mail inbox. Sorry, call me grumpy but snooze feature is no different to me setting a flag. I'll be surprised if anything beats mutt this decade.
Yes, tones of people do that already, it's called TeX or LaTeX. It probably takes about as long to learn as Word does anyway. The huge benefit of using LaTeX is that its fairly backward/forward compatible, unlike Word. Want a text based visio replacement? Try dot. Powerpoint? Don't know, don't care, make a multipade LaTeX document and just page up/down the output pdf/dvi. I don't really care much for powerpoint. Get started with LaTeX now.
I think you mean Mr Jobs
What do you expect when the Washington Redskins come after you.
What you're saying is mostly right. However, there is nothing wrong with livecds, what they install, maybe. Debian was just right in the lenny days. I don't know why they're now targeting GUI users who want a kitchen sink install.
Why systemd/gnome3 were the choice of late I don't know, I think this was a bad move for the distro. Systemd is a dependency now, which is *REALLY BAD*. It should have been agnostic towards upstart/sysv/systemd etc allowing the user to pick and choose between each.
