You say you've been trying to get linux working for years, and you can't do it. That's why I said you should give up. It honestly is not that hard to use at all, there are so many different distrobutions to try that there has to be one out there that you can work with. Also, you never said anything specific about the problems you had/are having, that could help us to help you.
None of which gives you any right to be disparaging to any of our members. Maybe you should give up at attempting to give anyone help, it really isn't hard.
As has already been stated, you need to find a forum treats newcomers with respect. Linux boards are notorious for throwing around elitist attitudes (which is part of the reason 'nix has a bad name). There are friendly boards where people can ask questions without getting told off (all evidence to the contrary aside).
I tried for a long time to get various distros to work, and never had much luck. One of the group I do research with was kind enough to help me set up CentOs, and after that, I didn't have much of a problem. All I needed was someone to help me with a few display issues, and I was good to go. Our servers are Linux based, so I spend about 30% of my time using Linux. I am considering dropping Windows off my personal system all together. I'm still weighing the benifits.
To avoid being flamed, make sure you research your issue and try a few of the recommended fixes. When you ask a question, then mention what you did, what information you have, and what you tried to do. If you still get flamed after that, move on to a different forum. As a side note, while Linux may be free, learning how to use it is not. Depending on what you want to do, that can take some hard work (at first). Just like anything else, you get out what you put in to it.
