- lack of decent documentation (many utilities do not even have man pages)
- constant configuration file format changes (old version formats are not fully supported, so upgrading means scrapping previous configuration and starting again)
- constant API changes (need to have many versions of same library installed, programs compiled on one version are unlikely to work on another)
- inconsistent keyboard mappings (various Unixes and Linux distributions disagree on what the backspace, delete, function keys, etc.) should do
