The inconvienient truth about linux Anonymous 10/25/2020 (Sun) 22:57:00 No. 1256
Why the Linux such a bad OS? The 4chan banned me off of the /qa/ board and range banned my town from image posting so we will discuss the bad parts about linux here instead There is a good part about it. However, If you have a job or a life it is worthless. The two major software suites that everyone needs is not availibe >doesnt have any adobe software >dont have office When it comes to resource usage, it plain just isn't better in any meaningful capacity compared to windows >the windoes OS lowers memory usage the less ram you have >person was able to trim windows 10 down to only using 450 mb of memory at idle >unused memory is wasted memory anyways Customization is something linux may have over windows, but ricing is a waste of time >linux ricers waste time constantly changing the apearance of their desktop weekly >windows can be riced too >windoes defaults work well for the 95% of people who use windows And linux is far more prone to breakages than windows
>>1256 >Why the Linux such a bad OS? because you're a nigger and can't into command line

>>1269 >putting racial slurs in every sentence It makes you look juvenile >Many people use both Adobe suite and Office suite on Linux. The fact you can't or don't know how to is because you are a dumb nigger. Is this cope? You can only really use very outdated versions of the software which are already several years out of date. >For people that use computers for computing - no. For faggots that like to pretend they know their way around a computer - yes. Funnily enough this only really applies to linux users. Most people only use it to look smart and to feel superior. >using 450 mb of memory at idle >Linux can run with a few Kb of memory nigger All usable distros use a at least couple hundred mbs of ram. Xubuntu and Lubuntu are examples, and both are considered extremely lean becuase of the lies people spout out about WiNdOZs UsEs 2Gb RaM On Idle >Billion dollar corporations that rely on stable servers choosing Linux over Windows are wrong and I'm right. No. You're a dumb nigger. Companies running linux servers run different distros than desktop users. Manjaro has a 20% failure rate every time you upgrade your system. https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/jfcmru/from_a_usability_standpoint_should_we_be/ Arch breaks every few months if you don't use "manual interventions." https://www.archlinux.org Apt package manager is also prome to frequent breakage. It broke on my several times while I was testing Ubuntu on a virtual machine a few weeks ago. Also lets talk about security. Desktop linux has no security model at all, and is very vulnerable to malicious software. It's only saving grace is it's obscurity which causes less people to write malware for it. Look at all these vulnerabilities in the kernel itself. https://www.cvedetails.com/vulnerability-list.php?vendor_id=33&product_id=47&version_id=0&page=1&hasexp=0&opdos=0&opec=0&opov=0&opcsrf=0&opgpriv=0&opsqli=0&opxss=0&opdirt=0&opmemc=0&ophttprs=0&opbyp=0&opfileinc=0&opginf=0&cvssscoremin=7&cvssscoremax=7.99&year=0&cweid=0&order=1&trc=662&sha=27cc1be095dd1cc4189b3d337cc787289500c13e
>>1272 >expecting any intelligent response from them youre an idiot.
If someone sends me a fucking "word" document or PDF or other graphical bullshit, it's useless to me. Give me the fucking plain text, niggers! I don't want your bullshit formats that were made with stupidly bloated software. And don't give me that Unicode bullshit either, just plain ASCII is all I want! Fuck your office suites, fuck your microsoft and adobe! Go suck off bill gates if you like him so much, but I never will!
>>1275 based. >>1272 go back to reddit you retard faggot. >>1273 >expecting any intelligent response from them youre an idiot.
OP, the reason is Linux users don't care about making a good OS. They want to develop shit for their own autistic uses. No one in their right mind is thinking about developing Grandma & Aunt OS. It's a lot of effort towards people who don't even know what the fuck an operating system is. No glory, no money, no personal satisfaction... Why put the effort? Also, until Wine doesn't get good enough to run 99% of the software Windows 7 can run it's not even worth trying. Just contribute to Wine if you want the masses to migrate to Linux. >>1260 Typical freetard, it can't be run on Linux therefore I don't need it. The sour grapes OS. >>1268 People like this are the exact reason why Linux won't ever go mainstream.
Office is shite ++ Code based word processing is far faster. Excel is still okay but serious data processing uses matlab or mathmatica. Windows 10 emulators for all the pirated software suites you need. Command line LINUX like ARCH is power tool if you can handle it.

>>1256 >Why the Linux such a bad OS? Kernel and the POSIX heritage isn't, but the nightmare you've likely to run into by main part is a circlejerk that tries to feel like Mac OS X with their systemd suite, PulseAudio (to be replaced with PipeWire in future), devil bus and other of whatever GNOMEtards do need (up to mandatory OpenGL by compositor which still is about windows-as-textures more than 90%). In case if someones chant demise of X Window System for another disaster (Wayland), there are trojan horses that could affect this movement like Michael Forney implementing swc and velox with what is not benefical for 3D APIs in mind (which is static linking). >dont have office Even worse are the future versions of MSO, where upcoming versions like 17.0 would remove standalone OSPP (which is a part of downlevel (Windows 7) compatibility of MSO 15.0 and 16.0), ultimately leaving successful runs on pure Wine marathonical and "illegal" (as the only way is writing crafted "Software Licensing" libraries the product's components dynamically link to, along with Purble Place, Chess Titans, Mahjongg Titans, Windows Explorer and Advanced Task Manager that also made use of this). The result is the new evidence of why cracked products still rule there. There is Android version of MSO products, but is of gimped assortment. >And linux is far more prone to breakages than windows concerns about some still-experimental device drivers e.g. where the development may still be full-on towards reverse engineering (like Nouveau) and potentially ABI-unstable APIs like X.Org Server, that wreck proprietary driver users stuck with vintage Xorgs. It's interesting that why only glibc uses symbol versioning well among others trying to use that (but end up so pointless that musl libc still wins), e.g. zlib, OpenSSL or Android's bionic libc. >>1286 >Also, until Wine doesn't get good enough to run 99% of the software Windows 7 can run it's not even worth trying. Win32 demoscene is really included due to fundamental differences of Wine's program loader. >>1288 lol
The manual interventions that you need to do a couple of times every year when you have Arch on some of your machines mostly boil down to simply running a couple of commands or changing the names of a bunch of files, really, how fucking difficult could that? Does Micro-shaft automate absolutely everything so that you never ever need to perform any manual interventions? Also, apt never breaks: I've used Debian for almost a decade on a few machines, and still use it on a router and a firewall and have never had any issues with apt whatsoever. You're insane. Manjaro, on the other hand, is garbage and has always been. Most importantly though, if you actually need to use Micro-shaft or Adobe garbage to perform your job, then maybe you're simply a nigger. People whose jobs have to do with computing, programming and such have no use for that garbage.
>>1272 shit-tier mental gymnastics right there YWNBAW
>>1303 >People whose jobs have to do with computing, programming and such have no use for that garbage. Basically, Linux is shit unless you're a programmer. Got it.

>>1305 Have fun with your proprietary spyware, kid.
>>1260 How the fuck? i can literaly use a botched version for free online and ms office is not the only option.
>>1303 >People whose jobs have to do with computing, programming and such have no use for that garbage. now, do you really mean this, or is this just b8? Because you're saying that anyone who isn't a programmer or IT or something like that is a nigger, and implying that basically intelligent people only work with computers. Ironically, a ton of the "work" being done with computers actually only solves problems that exist because computers exist. I feel like I've said this before to someone online, but I'll say it again. the people you think are "niggers" probably used proprietary software, perhaps on Windows, to design the device you're using at this very moment. The water utilities that connect to your house might run on a windows XP computer in a big building somewhere, and practically every manufactured object you use, if it was made in the last few decades, was for sure designed with a proprietary CAD program like NX or Solidworks, on Windows no less. I don't see how you could be in your right mind and actually think that all the engineers who designed practically every component of everything you use are beneath you, or niggers. Now, granted, it seems that most of the "work" done with Adobe tools is generally for entertainment and there certainly are alternatives to that, and stuff like LibreOffice is a decent alternative to MS Office. But come on, to think you're better than everyone else who's job involves them using their computer as a tool to get other work done? complete smoothbrain take.
>>1315 This is a red herring. How "smart" you are doesn't define which tools you use at work. You use the tools you're forced to, full stop. However, willingly using proprietary bloated spyware at home or whenver given an option to choose does raise questions about one's intelligence and nigger cattle mentality.
>>1317 > How "smart" you are doesn't define which tools you use at work. You use the tools you're forced to, full stop. agreed. >However, willingly using proprietary bloated spyware at home or whenver given an option this is understandable. sometimes you're forced, but when you have a choice then of course you have more options. Even so, I still feel that desktop linux is somewhat half-baked feeling. sure, retards can't use it, whatever, but I think it would do a lot of good to have it become a more popular choice if only because it's less control MS has. I use debian by the way. But I also use Windows 7 at home, and XP even for some things.
>>1256 >doesnt have any adobe software >dont have office You can run Acrobat under WINE, and there's always Fixit. There's Open Office and LIbre Office, you don't need Miscreant-o-soft crapware.
>>1256 >the windoes OS lowers memory usage the less ram you have Sure. It swaps everything out to VM and uses your RAM for disk buffer. Real smart. Meanwhile Linux only resorts to using VM for when you run out of RAM. Most of the time you never need the VM. You can even install the system without ANY VM. >person was able to trim windows 10 down to only using 450 mb of memory at idle There are 'tiny' distros of Linux. Look up Puppy Linux, for instance. You can run it off a $5 USB stick if you like. It'll run on the smallest cheapest RPi. >unused memory is wasted memory anyways That's one of the most braindead statements I've ever heard.
>>1256 >linux ricers waste time constantly changing the apearance of their desktop weekly Yes, yes, because if SOME users are """ricers""" then ALL users are """ricers""" >inductive reasoning *sniff sniff sniff* What's that smell? Smells like TROLL. Is there a TROLL in this thread? >windows can be riced too Yes. So your point was, what, exactly? >windoes defaults work well for the 95% of people who use windows ..and 95% of Windows users don't know, care, or can even understand how a computer even works. They're 'monkey button pushers'. Irrelevant, like most of your so-called 'arguments'. >And linux is far more prone to breakages than windows That's the most laugh-riotous thing you've said yet. IN CONCLUSION: You're either such a brainlet when it comes to computers that you couldn't get even an easy distro like Ubuntu or Debian to work for you and had to resort to a PlaySkool OS like Windows that holds you hand like the little babby you are, or you're an obvious troll; which is it?
>>1345 >Is there a TROLL in this thread? Yes and not just this thread. Have to strain to imagine an individual so pathetic and bored to troll /g/ on an obscure chan.
>>1347 I LOL'd.
I was going to into linux but the issues associated with trying to edit images are considerable. Sure you CAN run them, but they are demanding programs and can run slowly even on windows
>>1256 The old adage of how linux is more secure is not really supported either, because only the community could know so much about the security, but if it's not independently verified by corporate hackers, assuming anyone would waste time on it, then it would provide a more reliable inspection of whether or not the a priori statement is true or not.
