Don't worry too much about that. It's really not newby territory. I'm
finding it's a very much server OS which might get by as a desktop
system, but requires lots of work. The only real advantage is running
the latest desktop stuff with lesser hardware, because the resource
usage is much lighter. That's gotta be a high priority before someone
will do that much work. Oh, and it's marginally more secure, which means
far less convenient.
