Agreed. Not everyone here is a gear head. If I was a brain surgeon, I could say brain surgery is easy.

Y'all are funny. The whole reason the Raspberry Pi was brought to market was the dream of a low cost computer that could be distributed to 3rd world countries so grade school children could learn about computers and better themselves and the world, There's plenty of good tutorials geared for beginners. If you're not interested in expanding your horizons at a grade school level, that's fine! There's people that make a living by taking your money and doing it for you. I've enjoyed learning how to do it myself. It's not the rocket surgery some of you think.

I made the effort and took the time to learn to program the Stratux, but it's not all that easy for someone who is not into programming computers. I suspect most people on this site would rather not. For example, what could be easier than buying parts and assembling a Stratux, but I made quite a bit of money building and selling them to people who would rather not.

Yes, but they don't just drop boxes of them out of planes out into the African savannah and say, "It's easy, you can figure it out," then fly off.  

You have provided some very helpful instructions on how to do some low-level work with the Stratux in the past, but that particular comment came across to me as rather pretentious.  If you had phrased it just a little differently, it wouldn't have sounded that way.  For instance, if it's really that easy, you could have included a link to a site with clear instructions on how to do it, or at least a tip on a phrase to Google for that would have gotten folks headed in the right direction.  Or, if it's not quite that trivial, then don't lead folks to think that it is.  In that case, something like, "There are ways to change that OS behavior, if you have the time and interest to go dig up how to do it," would have been more appropriate.

Everyone's got limited resources, and time is often one of the most limited.  As you mentioned in your post, for some, time is more precious than money, and it's worth it to them to throw a few bucks at a problem to solve it instead of a few hours.  For others, the reverse may be true.
