I had a similar experience, and could get just as much help as you could. This is a normal kind of experience when checking out free software. The i's are not dotted and the t's are not crossed, whether it's as big and sprawling as StarOffice that won't run after install, or as small as a command-line-based FTP client that craps out midway through batch transfers. The people who like this stuff seem to really enjoy spending hours and hours tinkering with it and chatting in IRC about it. I'm not poor in money, but I am poor in free time. I'd rather pay for something that just works than spend my valuable hours futzing with something that almost kind of sort of works.
