Automatix and Easyubuntu (which I have never heard of) load software and
drivers that are not free . . . not licensed maybe. I don't know but I do
know that it is extremely hard for a person that doesn't have a lot of
experience to get a sound system working, play a DVD and other tasks without
spending many hours researching how to simply play a tune in Ubuntu. I don't
mind the search and asking questions but many people just want the program
"to play tunes" and not have to spend hours figuring it out. Right now I am
trying hard to figure out how to get Audacity to play a tune! It isn't easy.
