        And this is why you morons are always going to have trouble not being a small minority that devs don't care about. Unless you can make the OS reliable I am not going to use it and I'm competent with computers. I've used Linux before, but you know what? I don't have enough time in the day to Google how to get something to run on Linux when I inevitably come across a problem. Everything works on Windows for the most part.

        I don't care about impressing some useless fat neckbeard on the internet. I want a functional OS that works with the programs I use. Linux doesn't offer that without a retarded amount of wasting my time.

            You're coping hard. So many programs do not run on Windows so I'm not able to do my work on Linux as the files do not work on Linux alternatives. Even if they did, most Linux alternatives are just worse versions of what you can find on windows. Also, you run into issues all the time on Linux. On Windows I only run into issues if I'm trying to do something outside what the average user is trying to do. You cannot compare the two in terms of reliability and use case for the common person.

            You're only reinforcing my point because you Linux gays refuse to admit that your OS has too many issues for the average user to bother using it. The constant gatekeeping means that you will always be a minority userbase that no dev really gives a shit about. You guys pretend to not care but the constant bitching about "when is this coming to Linux" tells me otherwise. Unless you people admit that your OS is a hobby OS atm and work to actually make a functional and viable OS to transfer to you'll never have enough users for any major developer to justify programming anything for Linux.

              I mean to say "Do not run on Linux" in the first line. Another issue to add onto that is if you're sharing files from a Linux user to a Windows one, you'll very likely be using different programs which means you'll not be able to share work efficiently. I could list more issues but I think you get the point.

              babby duck syndrome is not an argument. if you hadn't used Windows since you were a kid you'd be bitching about how Windows is so obtuse and hard to use. And it is:
              >settings split across 2 fucking control panels (control pannel, settings "app"). and don't forget shit like "System", group policy, security policy, the fucking registry, etc.
              >updates undo your settings every time there's a version update
              >error messages are just fucking hex numbers. the system log is an absolute pain in the ass to wade through
              >CLI is hot garbage (e.g. manuals? lol no. text pager? forget it). batch scripting language makes your eyes bleed. Powershell is horribly verbose and obtuse
              >shit default settings that aren't obvious to anyone who's not used to it (e.g. disabling indexing of file contents, enabling file extensions, disabling all privacy-raping shit, disabling automatic driver downloads, disabling "cloud-based" anti-virus, disabling antivirus scheduled scans in the task scheduler, etc.)
              >etc.

                ...and your point is? Everyone grew up using Windows and there's one standard of Windows that is changed every couple of years but is still recognizable from previous versions. How many different Linux distros are there? How many different alternatives are there for every major Windows program that work to varying degrees? The issue with Linux is that there's no standard so everything is a crap shoot for the end user. The Linux alternatives are inferior versions of the windows counterparts so you won't have new users. Apart from that, new users can't even test out Linux because they might get confused as to what distro to use and even if they pick a distro they'll eventually come across a host of issues when they inevitably need to do basic shit on their computer.

                The utter retardation of Linux users in thinking that anybody gives a shit that you know how to use a computer is the reason nobody uses your OS. Nobody cares, they care about what you can do on the computer and with Linux its too much of a time waste to re-learn everything. The best Linux can do is emulate Windows without the spyware. Stop trying to re-invent the wheel or gatekeep because its not working. Nobody is using your OS and real devs won't take you guys seriously until you make a distro that even a retard can use.

                What's your point here? Holy shit, just state a list of package requirements in a readme file, similar to how fucking packages state their requirements in the package manager (e.g. LLVM version x.x.x or greater, Mesa version x.x.x or later). Even Windows does similar shit (what do you think vcredist and .net framerwork are?). Are you tech illiterate?

                You have a phone retard. I wouldn't mind swapping OS but Linux doesn't have a use case atm. Lots of people would want to swap but you gays can't swallow your pride and admit that in its current form its not viable. Instead you have to call everyone retards for not wanting to waste their time on an OS that doesn't work for them. There's not a conspiracy keeping devs from programming for Linux users, there are just so few Linux users because nobody wants to use the OS. What fucking reality are you people living in where grandma is going to open up a terminal to do her daily tasks? Even the "retard friendly" distros still have too much terminal usage to be viable for the average user.

          Fair criticism for sure. If you ever find yourself looking back to linux, there is a way to set up a windows vm with graphic pass through for 1:1 performance so that's always an option. Obviously though there is configuration involved.
          >2 decades of Windows muscle memory and how to navigate around
          KDE, xfce and Cinnamon all retain a similar but updated feel to that. The hardest things to get used to are the file structure (which is actually way easier, imo) and realizing how powerful the terminal is and how many seperate programs you can forgo in lieu of terminal. Don't be afraid, it's awesome.

                that's not his problem with C++, though obviously having classes in a kernel would be a retarded idea. Linus is much more concerned about developers who are basically reliant on std and boost, two things you can't have in a fucking kernel. Also imagine someone trying to shove exceptions in there lmao. No, C++ is for userspace only and maybe,MAYBE out of tree kernel modules. I imagine google's Rust experiment will also ultimately fail.

            maybe in some capacity, but having tinkered with a ton of DE most still miss simply UX, like corner interact, whether it's app close, or desktop app menus. GNU desktops in particular use the atrocious top bar that facilitates no cavern flick interactivity, like ta selection, allowing screen border to serve as a barrier, making EVERY interaction with an app demand precision. It's garbage UX that is consistent across linux DE distros, but something windows UX consistently 'gets' and utilizes to the benefit of user experience.

            but yeah sure. I guess there's a few useful things that make non win DE UX preferrable. I can't think of any single one however.

      there's not really a good reason. some people will point to things like forced updates, which can be annoying, but it's not worth relearning your computer fundamentals for.
      the real reason linux is so shilled here is because paranoid retards are afraid of the telemetry in windows that microsoft uses to make their UI better, but Ganker thinks it's reporting their child porn collections to the feds

    if i cant install a programm that is widely used on windows its out, if i cant double click on a exe file and its installing (i dont care if it has to convert it in the backround or whatever.. as long as i dont have to do it or get extra work), if i cant install the games i want its out etc

        The command line thing is a non-issue. It really just learn it. Its two fucking lines. And both lines are the same minus the sudo part. I have literally never had Windows auto update a single program for me, so 1 minute of typing a three word sentence just updating everything is much easier.

                ..so what about normal people that dont have a fat retard linux friend that tells them about these commands? or why command line is a thing in user experience in 2022 or how you expect people to just know random shit and to remember obscure commands... instead you know just double clicking shit whitouth having to remember random crap forever? oh right.. you got nothing, linux for the average user is a mess and idiots like you who defend the mess instead of demanding a better user experience are at fault for it being a mess in the future as well.

                Use experience is the fucking same as on windows for those things you cretin.
                When i started using linux 2 years ago all i ever used was gui tools, i never used terminal. Over time you just simply realize how more efficient and faster using terminal is and you slowly learn it naturally and stop using gui shit. You are just a retard that thinks that since people like me exists that don't use many gui tools that must mean there are none.

        Why would the devs waste their time programming for a userbase that is so small and irrelevant? A lot of Linux users also don't exclusively use Linux. A lot of them also use windows for gaming or work. You can keep shifting the blame to the devs but the real issue is Linux users failing to convince enough people to use their OS for it to not be a meme.

                So if you place a random person in front of a Linux PC and tell them to play a song from a folder they'd be able to do it? No, they can't. I don't care about anything but the functionality in an OS. If its a pain in the ass to use its a hobbyist OS. I might as well use TempleOS if I want to avoid spyware and have privacy. It'll at least be more entertaining than deluding myself into believing Linux is a viable OS.

                You gays don't understand what user experience is which is why you'll never have a userbase anybody gives a shit about. It's not just playing music, it's just about anything when using Linux. Music is just a meme because it's such a basic thing that's needlessly complex. Nobody is going to bother memorizing and Googling terminal commands when they can just use Windows. The very basics of using the computer have to be relearned for an OS that doesn't offer anything the average user actually wants over efficiency.

                "playing music" has never been a meme on linux, the problem you're likely referring to is that audio playback configuration (like sink detection, latency and the like) was somewhat problematic way overblown, by the way for years thanks to a piece of software that's already getting phased out

            I don't think you're getting it. It's not about apps "not running" on Linux. If you're dual booting, you have two separate environments where one can read the other one's files and the other can't.

              every single distribution is compiled with the kernel modules to support any filesystem that windows supports. you can:
              >store them on an ntfs partition (fastboot will prevent you from making changes on the Linux side)

                So you've listed a bunch of options, the first being infeasible because the whole point is that the music collection is in Linux, because that's supposed to be my daily driver, 2 and 3 carrying risks to file integrity, and 4 requiring me to set up a bunch of shit in the Windows terminal and install a third(!) environment just to be able to read the files.

                So I can read the files now. I can play the music... using a different audio player... losing my playlists... losing my settings.

                wsl --install, setting wsl to launch at startup and adding one line to your .profile to mount the drive is literally all you have to do

                Why am I putting my music collection on Windows? The whole point is to move away from Windows. And yes, making Windows boot slower when you keep having to switch between Linux and Windows is an actual problem.
                >why are you using a different audio player?
                Because the last time I used Foobar2000 in WINE, the global media keys didn't work. I'm not alt-tabbing every time I want to skip a song.

                windows is an operating system, not a file system. you're not "putting it on windows", you're putting it on a drive partition that's formatted to use the one journalling filesystem that NT comes with a driver for. unfortunately, NT is also fucking retarded and will mark all NTFS drives as dirty when fastboot is enabled, whether or not they actually are.
                luckily, you can just use ntfsck to change that if you truly cannot let go of fastboot.
                >The whole point is to move away from Windows
                and when you uninstall windows you will still be able to use the partition as you always have. although you should probably copy those files elsewhere and reformat that partition to a filesystem that doesn't suck.
                >And yes, making Windows boot slower when you keep having to switch between Linux and Windows is an actual problem.
                yeah i can imagine the whole extra 10 seconds will get grating if you're logging into windows to play a video game for 20 minutes 40 times a day. at that point just run it in a vm with kvm and hardware passthrough tbh

                Yeah, you would think something as relatively simple as a music player would have good equivalents on Linux, but they always fall short. No replaygain, weak customization, whatever, it's always 80% at best.

            No answer?

            I don't think you're getting it. It's not about apps "not running" on Linux. If you're dual booting, you have two separate environments where one can read the other one's files and the other can't.
            How do I listen to music while gaming in Windows, if my music library is in Linux? How do I keep my playlists and settings the same without duplicating them?

    ... Uh... Well, I did ditch Windows in favor of Linux Mint on a laptop that was so slow it was literally unusable. But it's worth noting that this laptop has a two core 1 Ghz CPU and 2GB RAM, so while it is usable, it's still barely good enough to run Teslagrad. My main computer still has 8 cores and 64GB of RAM, it can handle Windows just fine.

    I don't really see myself installing Linux on a PC with more than 4 cores and 16 GB RAM. Maybe if I'm going to have three computers or more I'll install Linux on one of them. If I ever have a kid, I might build a PC for them with Linux to save money, mostly because that would be for educational purposes, because why waste money on a Windows license you're not going to use yourself and on a computer only built to teach someone else how?

    The only way Linux could be viable on desktop is that some big corp puts his dick on the table and starts writing the one standard and every developer followed that standard like religion. Windows is good because you have only one windows and one WIN32 API and everything just fucking works and no one cares if its dogshit, it just works

    Before committing to the switch completely, i have a suggestion. If you have an old computer or a laptop, install Linux on that and toy with it. Alternatively, you could buy a cheap low-capacity SSD and install Linux on that. If you do that secondary SSD route, at system start up, you'll see a boot loader menu allowing you to pick load Linux and Windows. If you decide you don't like Linux, you can just reformat that SSD and everything will be like how it was.

    Congratulations, you've just proven exactly why it;s a moot point. As supply chain attacks can happen with literally any software delivery / package manager across any OS or device. You know what also has risks associated with it? literally downloading any EXE from the internet and running it. That's why it's a moot point.

    The difference is that every step of the way Arch users are told that THEY are responsible for auditing PKGBUILDS from the AUR and to know exactly what they're installing on their system. That's the whole point of Arch. Whereas whenever someone one windows has had a problem with a game, or software, the horrible advice for the past 20 years has been
    >JuSt DoWnLoAd ThIs DLL FiLe FroM thIs WebSitE.
