Why is Linux so difficult?

I agree with what dd said, the community can often be unhelpful and toxic. But it can also depend on which Linux distribution you're using, too. Some of them, like Arch and Gentoo, are more bare-bones when you start out, and can be challenging to set up. The reason for this is that some users really like their distro to be customizable, and don't like a lot of "bloat" (programs that are included that they don't really want). I think the fact that they set it up themselves sometimes adds to the elitist factor. I have been using Linux since 2017, and I've gotten used to it over time. It doesn't seem as difficult now.
