Here's a direct quote from the "About Debian Linux" page: "...compiling programs can be a frustrating experience. You can run into all kinds of errors due to outdated library files, certain assumptions made by the programmer (which don't hold true on your system), and numerous other causes. Save yourself some grief and use packages whenever possible or at least use pre-compiled binaries if they're available for your particular system."
My experience over the last five years or so is that it's exceptionally easy to corrupt/mess up a Linux installation, and find oneself lost in a swamp with only alligators for guides.
My biggest complaint about the Linux universe is that most of the documentation is seriously out of date, fragmented, incomplete, 'under construction' or written in arcane geek-speak that assumes one already knows the answer and needs only the Cliff's Notes condensed reminder.
Other than that, I love it ... but I try to stick to the "safe" repository binaries and synaptic or apt-get .deb packages. Which is one reason I really like SolydXK distro ... altho a rolling release, the crew tests all the updates before inflicting them on the community. Breakage is quite rare.

I prefer the Linux variant of Scrivener, as I've never much cared for the poor screen font display of apps running under Wine. But, that said, there are a few Win apps not available via Linux repositories that are priceless (to me) and I accept the Wine appearance."
