Patrick Henry, the 2nd:
Gotta agree. As a lover of Ubuntu Mate, it still blows donkey balls compared to MacOS. Its just so clunky and not well thought out.

What a cosmically stupid thing to say, even by the standards of DF.

Leftists never understand competition and innovation, do they?

Forget about all this shit listed.

What you want is Arch + Cinnamon as DE and then install Arc Flatabulous theme.

You can make Cinnamon work like OSX with high a high degree of comfort.

Except for the ability of a twitchy teenager with commit access to hose your working setup with a typo.

OK John, I'll bite: What are the requirements of your blogging such that Linux or even Windows is not a viable OS?

Telemetry shenanigans aside, Windows 10 is excellent. Especially if you're able to run the Enterprise edition.

Remind me of Apple's code quality standards and fucking GOTO errors.

Apple has some of the shittiest programmers and QA people in the Silicon Valley.

You dont know what you're talking about do you?
Consider the man hours put into OS X and Windows over the last 30yrs. Let alone the testing and the customer feedback. It would be impossible to produce an equivalent product to these two OS's.

Apple afford it because they sold computers off an OS. MS have things like Windows server and can afford it. No one else can. Thats why everyone uses Android because its too crazy to do it yourself (and google paid for that through their ad company profits).

Operating systems are like making cars, you think is easy until you have to do it yourself.

But... but... Linux is open. OPEN they say! Hundreds of thousands of eyes on the code, all for free out of the goodness of their hearts and selfless love for their fellow man. By golly, 2017 will really really fer sure pinky-promise "The Year of Linux on the Desktop".

I get the sentiment, and I am not nearly at the point where I'd want to dump OS X in favor of Linux, but there actually are some excellent Linux desktop distros out there. I installed one on a company laptop (without the IT department's permission, because fuck Windows) and it's actually quite nice. I'd switch to it any day of the week over Windows if push came to shove.

And yet Linux beats Windows. Your hypothesis doesn't hold water.
