LoL! Age and Experience! I'm a big believer in the what the RPi Foundation are doing, I am of the generation that learnt on what would now be called 'Retro Systems' Atari400/800, C64, etc, when performance was limited and programming knowledge was key to making anything useful (I taught myself 6502 Assembler because Basic didn't cut it), the first IBM Compatible PC I purchased didn't even have Windows, it was MS-DOS (like Console/Terminal on the RPi). I've also been using Emulators for a LONG time, I had the first DOS version of MAME that only played 5 Titles (back then you needed separate Emulators for each Board/Company, and often individual Games!) now they have all been integrated. Computing today makes things easy for users, modern 'High Level' Windows Systems obscure what's actually being done underneath, your just 'pointing and clicking'. One of the reasons I try to push the Source Code - Compile your own Binaries section in my Emulation Thread is that by doing so it will force users to use basic Bash commands and simple manipulations, in doing so learn something, thusly using Binaries becomes much easier as you have the skills to overcome any problems yourself. That's one of the reasons the RPi is so good for computing education, by taking things 'Back to Basics' and learning though doing, the more you 'Tinker', the more knowledge you will acquire!
OK, evangelical sermon is over for today! Enjoy your RPi!
PS A good Tip if your having problems with a program/emulator, open a Terminal ('CD' into the folder and run it Type ./program name), if it crashes the Bash Script will often give details of the issue, thus making it easier to find the problem, where as if running from a GUI it just closes leaving you none the wiser!
