And this is why Linux will NEVER be a useable desktop OS

Yeah there are bugs, but its how easily the user can get a machine that lets him send an email when he runs into a bug.

Can you imagine an actual user in the real world doing this? or even understanding what this is telling him to do? And this is already sanitized for general consumption.

"If you're affected by this DNS problem, rebuild Systemd without libidn2, stop using Systemd as your resolver if possible, apply this temporary patch – or better yet, wait for libidn2 to be fixed to cope with underscores."

Linux is becoming MORE like a hobbyist OS than ever before
