How soon to corporations and normies frick this shit up? I have a feeling with all this "like windows, we made it like windows" mentality going on,Linux is gonna become a victim of it's own ease of use once actual gaymes, and other proprietary software makes its way over,

I almost don't ever want it to become mainstream because it will get ruined.

    yours truly, pajeet.

    Cool thing is that unlike windows, there actually is no "linux". If the "linux" you are using is normie as frick, you can just ditch it and switch to a better "linux".
    People who are new to Linux usually try Ubuntu first and if Ubuntu acts buggy, they tend to conclude that everything related to Linux is buggy and inferior to Windows, lmao.
    I hated Ubuntu ever since I first tried it because it was bloated then. Newbies should understand that they can just try Fedora or something else if they have issues with Ubuntu or don't like it and realize that there is no one giant corporation backing Linux for desktop PCs similar to how MS does for windows.
    So, the shit that one has to deal with while using Linux distros is of totally different flavor than windows's, primarily because most of the developers are ignorant about software development on Linux. Linux is notoriously confined to backend servers and embedded systems. Desktop application development could use a lot of improvement and seeing how things like wayland, dbus are popping up and graphics API like vulkan is providing support, there is hope, a huge one.

        ayy, affirmative.
        Fedora and Ubuntu happen to be one of the most popular linux distros and despite both being gnome based, they both feel significantly different to an end user who is trying linux for the first time so I used them as an example.

      Don't think they wouldn't do it if linux gets "big enough", anon, stuff like Photoshop already exist on Unix based operating systems, sure it's cringe Apple Darwin, but it is Unix, and you can already get steam on Linux and download the source engine games and more, so it's slowly happening, and with so much stuff being a web application these days, more and more normie stuff can take place on the linux desktop, I just don't want everything to be really gay when the year of the Linux desktop comes.

        If I remember correctly, there's a translation layer in the works to run Apple software on linux much like wine and proton is for windows software.

            Yeah, it would probably let us use Photoshop as well. I remember one of the issues of windows Photoshop was the dependency on an specific version of old internet explorer.

        In a nutshell, needless bloat, forced adoption choking the alternatives to death, bigger attack surface = more bugs and vulnerabilities, and going against the UNIX principle of keeping the user in control and keeping it simple.

          UNIX principle does not have anything to do with keeping the user in control or keeping it simple. It means Worse is Better. Worse is Better is worse for users and it's not simple. Worse is Better is why UNIX/Linux systems have so much code that doesn't actually do anything.

            UNIX systems are mostly code that has nothing to do with what you are doing on your computer. It's all boilerplate that adds code just because UNIX people like writing code.

      True, I just hope the core of Linux doesn't get fricked with, I'm kind of a noob using Linux mint, so I'm hoping that Ubuntu LTS and it's packages that it's based off of don't become moronic and that they can stick to being relatively simple but with everything you need.

    The worst part about modern game developers is that they have replaced cheat codes with an in-game store where you buy "convenience" with real money. Then they balance the game not to maximize fun but rather so that it's just tedious enough so that many people will buy a cheat. And they do it even in single player games that could have been completely offline.

    AMD is already fricking up Linux doing planned obsolescence by uploading untested code to the kernel and breaking stability for all of their costumers.

    https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=204181#c59

    > And how about instead of knowingly pushing untested code with known fatal
    > errors you stop taking QA notes from FGLRX in the first place and do your

    > RX[4-5][7-8]0, VEGAs and so on, to use them as expensive bare output
    > controllers.

    This. If this were just a free project with volunteers giving their time, many of us who occasionally throw a tantrum towards AMD wouldn't be. But, some of us are throwing money at AMD to try to have a stable system again, and keep getting regressions introduced that are either fixed very slowly, or not at all.

    So, I pay AMD more money and buy a RX 580, which is mostly a downgrade from the R9 390. Get frequent crashes from that as well.

    So, I just decide to buy a Vega 64. I don't need the extra power, I just want to run a stable machine. Since AMD devs aren't saying what card I could use that they do, in a hope that they might fix crashes before they push them, I figure the latest and greatest might be getting more attention.

    All goes well until this regression is introduced.

    I go back to try my R9 390, and guess what? The same bug introduced in kernel 4.19 is still there in 5.3! AMD's just ignored it, and hasn't bothered to try to reproduce it themselves and try to untangle the mess of spaghetti.

    Since running a custom kernel with the patchset, I haven't had this crash, but come on guys! Couldn't AMD have a bank of 50 computers running different cards, constantly running the latest unpushed code and going through different stress tests? Hey, Jim, monitor #14 and #36 keep crashing, let's look into it.....

    This. Linux desktop should never be mainstream, I like the p2p community of linux, where every piece of your system was made by some random dude on a Sunday afternoon.
    >I almost don't ever want it to become mainstream because it will get ruined.
    I don't think people will ever quit using windows, even if M$ started recording their webcam and mic 24/7, don't forget that the same people who we speak about are the same who put a mask, and locked themselves, then got a untested vaccine for some imaginary flu. If something happened to loonix, I'd take the BSD pill, and I vill be happy.
