Oh, they've made great progress since then, but there's still so much
stuff that is so horribly broken.

That's ok for all sorts of experimental fringe things that allow me to
do the wacky /sui generis/ stuff. I love Linux for the freedom it gives
me to waste lots of my time on trying to come up with schemes that save
lots of my time.

But I don't need anything /sui generis/ about

1. WiFi
2. Backups
3. Hibernation

These are all so fundamental and so obvious that the should just work,
dammit. Linux comes woefully short on this front, even today.
