I’ve been in IT for 20 years now, and I have met tons of people who go through these phases.

They usually can’t wait to change the subject.
Compared to Macs, Windows, and other mainstream products, using fringe stuff is WAY harder than it looks. Even after a week or two. It takes a few weeks or a couple months before you finally realize that, yes, you were getting quite a bit with the mainstream rig.
