Interesting summary, and brave conclusion.
I, too, wondered about why I put up with doing so much work by hand with a source-based system, where stuff breaks all the time. Or why I keep on not throwing away old hardware and instead building a host of computers out of that, causing further work. Well, people do things.

Out of curiosity: Does that mean that you leave the world of hackery and rather go into the world of usery, installing some ubuntuan system and trying to do stuff instead? Or are you leaving computing behind entirely?
Or... are you heading for the dark side? That would be a bit gross. Just using Linux, especially when not being totally clueless, really does not have to be a threadmill nowadays.
