      Not quite, the problem is that anybody working for free wants to do it their own way which is why we have eleventy billion linux distros that all suck shit and have no reason to exist. It doesn't help that people who work for free are disgusting untouchable autists so their design choices are bad.

        Looks pretty competitive:

        2024 client usage
        >Linux (including Android/ChromeOS): 60-65%
        >iOS/macOS: 25-30%
        >Windows: 15-20%
        >Other (most likely also Linux): 1-5%

        2024 server usage
        >Linux: 70-75%
        >Windows Server: 15-20%
        >Unix (including macOS servers): 5-10%
        >Other (most likely also Linux): 1-5%

          Not sure where you are getting those numbers from. Also android has nothing to do with your meme distros. Just like super computers or servers don't either. You are coping with poor decisions and using a server/mobile kernel for desktop usage. That's why you can't run any programs and have zero hardware support on your PC lol.

        It's more like a house than a car, and BSD is the foundation. Or actually it's less like a house and more like a giant frick-off office building with BSD as the rebar in the foundation.

    Americans only love macOS. It's ugly, functions terribly, and has one too many restrictions.

      I thank God every day i switched from a Ryzen 5700GE to an m2pro mbp14.
      99% of it just werkz. So much less pain it's ridiculous.

      If they only had a GUI for the pfctl utility it'd be amazing.

      I've seen this video a couple of times and i just feel for the guy, imagine if you have a son and he makes you go through this, it's the worst.
      Out of curiosity i just searched to know more about it and found the plebbit post (no surprise).
      Turns out the troon reveals in a comment that the dude is a stepdafather, made me feel a little better. It still sucks though.
