They've been repairing computers for 20 years, and it took them a while to learn to use a Linux terminal?

Well, VMware Workstation Player might be the worst virtualization software. Should see if VirtualBox works better.

Is there a universal remote that you can configure from Linux? There's a way to configure the Logitech Harmony remote in Linux, but I'm lazy.

You know what's hard to use? The Window command prompt. The only Linux command that I know works, is cd. And it uses a backwards slash instead of a forward slash. Pain in the ass.
