It all depends on the person. I can install things such as Linux, OpenBSD,
Solaris, OpenVMS, MacOS and RT-11 almost with my eyes closed, and the hardest
part is waiting for the software to move from CD to HD (yes, even with RT-11).
With any Windows variant I seem to have to dedicate a minimum of one day to
cursing and fighting the garbage!
