I'm realistic. All you can do is run from tyranny when it's too efficient. Linux doesn't work, newer software just gets worse, you may as well keep older software and live in a anarchy village out in the middle of nowhere. The powers that be would not even care if you did. You just have to be far enough away.
Seriously though, Linux is trashy. It always will be until it works as well as windows 95 did, but doesn't due to lack of streamlined options and no offline guides. I've legit never installed a bit-torrent application on Linux and had to install Lakka before just to get emulation to work. If I can't use a normal GUI desktop distro with just those two things easily installed then it's trash. So I give up on it. I will never take Linux seriously with how it behaves.
And no you can't fight the powers that be. Just run.
Linux can't be used by non-autistics. You're spinning your wheels too often to have common sense is why, when using Linux. Everything is a waste of time.
