hm, so you're saying users should boot a live media everytime they want 
to compile some software?

Yes, Linux is still only 1-2% of global pc users.
It should be expected that most new Linux users come from other OSes.

Everyone will have different reasons.
Speaking for myself, I wanted to try something different and also stop 
with the piracy.

I believe this too. Each OS works in different ways.

My post is not about this though.
It's about new linux users are having a very hard time getting new 
software to work for them.

I still have issues with mailing lists...
I never liked them, and don't believe I ever will.

I might be wrong on this, but I believe most "non-techie" users have 
never used mailing lists (or even IRC).
It was surely a surprise to me at first.
