          This is what we call in the industry an "XY problem". You are trying to solve problem X, "I cannot make mixed refresh monitors work on X", but that's actually downstream from your true problem Y, "I am using monitors with mismatched refresh rates". Your actual problem can be solved by using two monitors with matching refresh rates. You will notice that when you solve problem Y, problem X will vanish on its own. That's the power of doing things the right way.

    >How true is this?

    As true as Apple demanding a huge price to provide you anything, even the repairs. GNU/Linux hands over all the stuff to you for free. Free as in actual freedom where you have actual control over the hardware your own.
    Also, please stop the blatant "Linux sucks" already. Its just a kernel and if you are having a bad user experience then its a poor job of whatever distribution you were using, not the kernel's.
    RTFM is for people who have the necessary skills to play around with the hardware they own, its not for every tom, dick and harry. Clearly not to the guy in the tweet. I'd like to categorize it as Mac is for people who want to drive a fancy car like a Rolls Royce and GNU/Linux is for people who want to drive a car customized for their needs, like a F1 car. Clearly then weren't meant to be compared at ll in the first place.

    The point is that the computer user, as functioning in the development of computer products is not a real person of flesh and blood but a literary figure, the creation of literature, rather poor literature. 15 years ago I Inoticed that Dutch computer scientists developing products, when talking of the needs of the user would use—in the middle of a Dutch sentence—the American word user, which of course is perfectly translatable, as you and I both know. Our cigarette packages have english on them as well.........; but then I discovered that in spite of their anglophobia, the word user is perfect French. Then I discovered that it is also perfect Russian and the two of us also know more Japanese than you think. Well the mere fact that that little word is not translated, but it is taken over as a foreign body, in Dutch, French, Russian and Japanese discussions, means that it has lost its original meaning. Now, if you start to analyze the many character traits of that literary figure, you discover that he is most uninspiring. He is stupid, education resistant if not education proof, and he hates any form of intellectual demand made on him, he cannot be delighted by something beautiful, because he lacks the education to appreciate beauty. Large sections of computer science are paralyzed by accepting this moron as their typical customer. Rare are the computer companies that are prepared to make a Mercedes, the analog the high quality product for the discerning customer. As it turns out, particularly in the USA mathematics is the pinnacle of user unfriendliness, if you read the catalogs of text book publishers, then it is quite clear that the major recommendation that they give a book is that it is a-mathematical, that it does not require mathematical knowledge, etc. So, user friendliness is, among other things the cause of a frantic effort to hide the fact that eo ipso computers are mathematical machines.

    there is some truth but overall the answer is no

    Back in the day you would have to really fight to get video cards working, which could be a pain in the ass. A lot of manual configuration was necessary. This guy is talking about installing a less friendly distro intended for guys who know what's up like Alpine, Arch, Gentoo, Slackware, etc. OpenBSD is the same way.

    Today there are desktop oriented distros that are moron proof. You can have a working functional live desktop while installing linux in parallel within 1 minute. Elementary OS, Ubuntu Mate, Linux Mint are all very intuitive and easy to use.

    Also, what he's failing to understand is all of the back end infrastructure that makes his Apple products function are running all non-apple servers. Your iPhone update is not coming from an Apple server. iCloud is not Apple servers.

    very true: UI testing has found that inexperienced and intermediate users don't read manuals.

    >One of the most interesting epiphanies I've had over the last few years seems on the surface like a paradox: "help" in Office is mostly used by experts and enthusiasts.
    >How can this be? I think my biased assumption was that experts know how to use the software already and eager novices would be poring over the documentation trying to learn how to be more effective using it.
    >Yet, in usability tests we see it again and again: novices and intermediates click around and experiment, experts try to reason things out and look them up in help.
    ….
    >Alan Cooper talks about "perpetual intermediates" in The Inmates Are Running the Asylum. The idea, paraphrased, is that most people using software are "intermediates." Beginners don't stay that way for long, but most people don't have the time, energy, or desire to become truly elite "experts." I believe that it is precisely these intermediates who don't rely on the help system. In fact, they might be defined by their general unwillingness to look features up in the "command encyclopedia." Experience shows that intermediates tend to explore the product, not the help system.

      that's exactly why things like ios are the way they are, the keep what you can do to a bare minimum so they have more control over the complete experience
      this is at complete odds with what linux provides, it's impossible to give a user root access to a system AND have an unbreakable experience, to use a car analogy, it's like trying to make a car that a user can't crash, you can't do it, the solution is to give the user a taxi, don't let them drive at all

    Appleshit is for people that don't understand computers and want the computer to guess and do a bunch of things you didn't ask for but it thinks you want. If you have any measure of technical ability and understanding of how computers work, Apple's ass-backwards way of doing things will frustrate if not infuriate you. And Apple hardware isn't anything to write home about. What Apple has going for it are really great displays and interoperability between their products.

      Most people are tech illiterate which is why Apple is so popular. Using an apple product is basically like living like a literal toddler: You can't go anywhere you want or play with anything you want in the house because it could be dangerous, you don't have to know how to cook but you never get to decide exactly what you eat, things are explained to you in very simple ways and you don't know how to read, etc

    I maintain about 150 linux computers. They are all running Ubuntu 20.04, 22.04 or 24.04. For most part they are just running chrome, which has the e-commerce platform we develop opened in the browser. We offer these machines as leasing packages.

    Here are a few things that annoy me:

    1. Printers will autoinstall but they never work by autoinstalling. The UI is simple, but it is not consistent. 24.04 finally has a fresh enough hplip package. None of the manufacturers have good support for Linux.

    2. Poor programs. All the FOSS equivalents like GIMP are simply bad compared to Photoshop or their proprietary equivalents. People hate using libreoffice and GIMP. This is why I have two computers at work, my Ubuntu main machine and a windows computer to run Photoshop and Office.

    3. Stupid small shit like if you install chrome but you don't set the keyring password as blank in seahorse, it will keep asking the login password every time you open chrome. This is unnecessary and doesn't happen on Windows. Keyhorse should be activated only when needed, not by default. There are plenty of these small things.

    Another stupid thing: With wayland, anydesk will not work without major fiddling. It will work with X11 but X11 introduces tearing in some machines. They should just make it work with wayland. All of these things are non-issues on windows and sometimes it would just be more easier to run windows on all machines, but where windows is more user friendly, we use Linux because it's unlikely to get a virus. We don't tell the customers the password, the computers are always just autologging in. This is to prevent people from installing their own shit when they try to be too smart for their own good.
