I am not sure if this is appropriate, but I just spent a week trying to install either Jupiter or Hera on an old MacBook from 2009 that just got phased out of surfing the web, due to browser incompatibility. It sucks. I was taken in by the news about the simplicity, ease of use, aesthetics, etc. etc. I was pumped. Then I tried to do it. Error after error. Oh well, maybe it's time to unplug and live in the physical world again. It's just tough to communicate with everyone else sucked into the digital world. No offense intended.
