      The only software with these issues is student license slopware that massively benefited from babyducks being unwilling to adapt their workflow or ecosystem, so they're not going to port to userbase more likely to break out of their dark patterns.

      Your subscription based licensing models are a meme that will never be accepted outside of an enterprise environment where people buy warranties as a form of subscription service for physical objects.

      MacOS is 15% global market share. Linux is 4%, 6% including ChomeOS. If Linux gets to a similar level as MacOS you will see Adobe and others ported. (Last year Linux was 3%, the year before that 2%)

      >You will see adobe and others ported
      Considering the level of active sabotage, I doubt it. If they wanted to let Linux happen, it would just happen. They want the student babyducks dragging their goldfish poop software into enterprise and don't want the Linux market segment infecting that.

    No less secure than WinShit or OS X.

    Lots of compatibility with commercial software, just not as much as Windows, because that's not a primary goal of of GNU/Linux.

      have two screens
      open multiple windows
      start quickly moving one of the windows around
      this shit is unacceptable, the performance is so bad it hurts
      and no, it's not the issue of my graphic card, I've been hearing this shit for ages
      Also this isn't an issue on wayland, but wayland is so bugged it's unusable on it's own

          Tearing is only one of the problems, the windows just move around very sluggishly

          it's your compositor

          This shit happened to me on literally every DE, with the exception of openbox and i3, but these are a pain to use

            I don't move windows with my mouse most of the time, and when I do, it's just minor adjustment and the only window that ever flickered for me was some shitty java program

            Okay it was unfair of me to presume. I have two screens and only an onboard graphics card, and am using a DE. I'll try this later and see what happens.

            exactly, openbox doesn't have a compositor
            try xfce and disable the compositor

            The sluggish movement has to do with old compositors on nvidia. It's fixed in kde plasma 6. It was only ever an issue on compositors that are 10-15 years outdated.

    But you're right, you have to choose between ancient xorg that "just works" (on 10 year old thinkpads) or buggy wayland and you have to cope with krita and gimp

    Just use wine or a VM for those in the rare case when a program doesn't have a Linux version.

      stop downplaying this, someone needs to get together a few linux enthusiasts and start terrorizing large software companies that only cater to windows/macos.

    its not.
    the dev support and teams making mac and windows are far greater than Linux.
    if we disregard the fragmentation and DE troubles, microsoft is also a platinum member in linux and different DE. you think they are going to sit around and let it happen?
