My experience has been the opposite, it's the bloated programs that are
hard to customize whenever I want to do something even *slightly*
outside the box.

But at the end of the day, I'm not really interested in trying to
forcefully "convert" you (or anyone else) since I believe that people
should be able to do what they want with their computers.
