Are you just being intentionally obstinate? I agree that it would be
great if Ubuntu supported 20,000 free packages, but I guess they can't.
Otherwise they probably would. If you have an idea how to do this, they
would certainly love to hear about it.

Anyway, what do you expect, really? A system that supports *everything*
and needs *no manuals at all*, for free?
