Control what? The source code of an application? Or the kernel? I

control over my personal creative workflow. But Linux was controlling
me in a way that I have to take care of lot admin tasks and bugs. Yes
the bugs and workarounds on Linux controlling me and I'm to stupid to
fix them all plus write my dream apps. I'm one of the guys, going into
a music store and buy a guitar and not one of the guy who'd like to
