Trolls like Gary M Stewart (AKA "Sandeep Kumar") would rather confuse the
lurkers, suggesting distributions that may lead to frustration because they
are hard. Gentoo and Slackware are typical examples. At the same time, they
try to portray themselves as advanced users to gain credibility.

In reality, the trolls don't even use GNU/Linux. See recent example and
explanation in
