No it's just scorp123's way of expressing himself.
What he means and writes is that it is you that are in control - so as you climb the learning curve you get better and better as a Linux user
Unfortunately no installer I have seen does suggest you put /home on a separate partition, which is a really good thing to have
In case the worst happens and things get all screwed up you just install and all your personal data is intact (you may have to remove some or all the config files)

On the contrary. You better be motivated to learn. Because if you aren't then Linux really isn't the right OS for you.

BTW, was I writing Chinese or how the f*** were you able to understand the opposite of what I tried to tell you? :roll:

No. If you don't know it then you better either ask before you do something potentially stupid or you better have Google ready or you better be prepared to read some infos, How-To's or other instructions. You are in control. You tell the OS what to do and not the other way round. So *you* have to know stuff ... not the OS.

Like I was saying anything of the opposite?? :roll:

What?? Your 35mm projectors are not setup to automatically disassemble and reassemble themselves ... ? .... :wink:

Applying your own logic from that posting above where you complained about the installer not being setup to do certain things --- then your 35mm projectors should assemble or disassemble themselves auto-magically ... but obviously no matter how good a 35mm projector is -- at one point you'll need the knowledge for disassembling and assembling them again. You have to know what you do ... I don't suppose you can disassemble a 35mm projector and then expect that it will re-assemble itself auto-magically again, right? Same with OS'es and their installers: You have to know what you do.
