    • You can blame America’s love of consoles for that. Most people think I’m a wizard because I know how to put a new SSD into a computer. It’s fucking sad. No wonder China dabs on us when it comes to tech.

      • The worst thing is that it is completely possible to port FOSS under permissive licenses to consoles. And that copyleft is not an obstacle for things that are not making it to consoles, like compilers, and things like Blender.

  1. this but unironically
    i tried pop os, it sucked, ran slower than windows 10, shit was constantly breaking, the alternative programs were crap, a lot of my favorite obscure games wouldnt work no matter what i tried, and it just generally felt like crap to use

        • not watching it because I already watched this wan show but wasn’t it mostly downloading a script off github?
          he’s right to complain about the monumental task but he also fucked up by not verifying the contents of his "save link as". some of the fault is also on github but not since it’s a convenience thing to show source files directly with ~features~ instead of the raw directly.

          everyone was in the wrong.

    • Big YouTubers are as stupid as their 16 year old audience is. I can’t wait till the Chinese and Russians invade and kill them in droves.

    • You see, here’s the reality of our "situation." I’m guessing your either 16 or 22, either way, you’re too stupid to exist. We now live in a country, a planet, where patriotism is dead. We (if you’re American) live in a country where a woman can get raped on a train and no one does anything. Americans are fat, stupid, useless pieces of shit drunk on complacency and high on arrogance.
      There is NO shortage of goods. Americans are just to fat and lazy to go back to work.
      The military is more worried about trans rights than training warriors. High schools are more concerned with teaching social justice than math and science.
      The day is coming when the "invaders" will arrive and slit your throat with a bayonet and bleed you out like the useless animal you are.
      Complacency is the enemies greatest weapon. You live in comfort where you have the luxury to bitch about YouTube and video games, because you believe that things will never change, that there aren’t enemies at the gate.
      Most of you could muster a hard on without looking a fucking cartoon character, and you think you’re going to rise up against Russian and Chinese machine guns?
      You idiots have no idea. All you care about is jerking off to cartoons, pretending you’re going to be the next big "e-celeb," worshiping trannies and homosexuals… you have no idea how close the end really is.

          Keep enjoying your Discord, games, being lazy and useless, worshiping pop culture, refusing to educate yourself with real history, real art, real philosophy. Keep living in denial. I’m going to die too, but I’m going to laugh when you the bullets split your body and fall screaming for your mommy.
          >lol schizo that will never happen. nothing will change. ever.
          We’ll see.

  2. 10 sucks, 11 will be worse. If you had to fix fucked up boomer pc networks all day long for satellite architect and engineer offices that have all kinds of convoluted network topology and rolled up installations from vista, you’d know just how bad an installation can get. It’s literally LESS work now to run linux.

    • A lot of PC gamers have Nvidia cards so its really not that surprising that they’d have slightly sub-par experiences on GNU/Linux and choose to allow Microsoft to have complete control of their machine.

      What’s more surprising is that there’s still people with AMD graphics cards that use Windows. WTF.

      • Linux adoption isn’t the only thing that’s gonna go up with the Deck’s launch. Maybe it’ll light a small fire under Nvidia’s ass to actually do shit instead of marketing their RTX cards.

      • In the 90s maybe. Windows is only 30% of personal computing devices, and even in the desktop niche they’ve carved out they’re barely 80%.
        Even Steam which is a self selected group of PC gamers GNU/Linux is over 1%, and that number jumps up significantly when fake accounts from China are excluded, and then again when you filter for people who actually use Steam and own more than 100 games.

  3. Let’s be honest, games almost always run better in windows. But having games run slightly worse is a sacrifice I’m willing to take to gain my freedom.

  4. Based. Linux is for servers, not gaming. Try running your Nvidia graphics card on Ubuntu, it won’t work. Try updating your OS, it will brick your system unless you’re experienced enough with coding to repair a broken MBR. The Year of the Linux Desktop will never happen because Linux as a desktop OS is a joke.

  5. Play on OpenBSD. The lack of Wine forced them to make native source ports. Sadly, this limits them to games made with open-source software.

  6. Linux fans are like trannies. They will lie and downplay until they get you to convert. The only difference is that you only lose a couple of days at most (if you have the sense to bail early) rather than your life.

    • Nobody lied to you. You’re just autistic. When you come into a Linux thread and demand to know why anyone would use Linux for gaming (and, let’s be honest, you’re one of those guys), and someone answers "well, it runs all of my favorite games", that doesn’t mean it runs all of YOUR favorite games.

      Please stay on Windows. Nobody genuinely wants you to "convert". If you think otherwise, that was probably just your literal autism preventing you from identifying what is a tongue-in-cheek shitpost and what is actually meant to be taken seriously.

      • Fuck you. Linux is the most autistic shit in the world. You have to use a command line, memorize code and literally be an autistic weeb just to install a browser. Windows is for sane people, the majority.

          Literally nothing about this claim is even remotely true.
