I understand your frustration, but SushaBrancaleone is absolutely right:

Like life, FTL is about the journey, my friend.
When I started checking this forum regularly I was baffled and kind of jealous of what lots of people had to show. All ships unlocked, several victories and so on so forth.
I was like "Am I doing anything wrong?", "Do I suck at this game?"
But then I realized that I have only 22 hours into FTL so far. About 13 runs total (including achievement runs). I have only 1 victory (normal) with the Engi Cruiser. Ships unlocked: Kestrel B, Federation A/B, Engi A/B, Zoltan A/B, Stealth A, Rock A.
Most of the people that has a lot to show has been playing this game for a long, long time now. They got it all due to persistence, skills, experience and knowledge. All of that takes time.
Getting new ships easily would take away all the thrill and satisfaction.
This game is brutal and that is what makes it great.
Keep trying and it will all come naturally.
Have a great journey! :)
