Re: Anybody else?
"It's just impossible to support all of Linux in a way that doesn't require the end user to be prepared to do a lot of command line administration."
Sorry, but that's not not my experience. I install OpenSUSE every year or two as a new release come out, administer it with the GUI tools and it just works. I also have a lot of Raspberry Pis networked together - now they are a more work due to the lighter weight desktops and the more experimental uses I put them to but still most admin. is done with the GUI tools.
