The terminal emulator is much easier for manipulating files, so thumbnails aren't really necessary, you're just a babby.

>no support
You can pay for support, same way you pay for Windows or MacOSX and get support. Canonical and Red Hat both offer paid support.

>doesn't just werk
Yes, it does. I installed Windows 7 and Debian on the same machine. Debian recognized the network card and graphics card during install and once the installation was done I booted up into a fully-functional system.

When I booted up into a fresh install of Windows 7 it had 1024x768 resolution and didn't recognize the network card. I had to go to a different computer and download the network card driver and then transfer it to the PC via USB. Now what if I didn't have another computer in the house, would I have to go to an internet cafe or a friend to get the network card driver then go back home to install it? Yeah, definitely an experience for 2016.

Because it's true. When picking a file the thumbnails are extremely tiny, and there's not an official fix for it.

It's a GTK issue, and a widespread one. I don't understand how someone who regularly uses Linux actually denies that it exists.

I can even run a full session from an usb, usually when i install windows i must use another computer to download the ethernet drivers, compared to that driver support on linux is much better. I consider you claim is too wide, be more specific.

By involving your tastes now your argument is not better than an opinion, i'll just put this here and everyone can decide if you're right or not:


>> No.57284083

>>no games*
This is pasta but it address your argument:

The no games argument is not true anymore. Windows is the best os for gaming mostly due to most game developers are trained into developing for it with microsoft's closed APIs, so the simple process of porting a game that was developed for windows to any other platform will affect negatively the performance of the game. This with the fact that the marketshare is small compared to windows there's hardly an incentive at the moment to optimize for linux, making look as if the platform were worse for games than windows when in fact to flip the situation you'll need to change the idiosyncrasies on the industry itself.

The fact though is that the situation on linux is not nearly the same than two years ago and now those who prefer linux over windows now can play games on it, helping to break the vicious circle, but still there's a lot of things to do for linux to compete in the gaming side. I anyone wants for this to change i recommend to play the games you can on linux when possible and ask for linux ports.

I notice some people doesn't want's for this to happen but if that the case let me ask (not directed specifically to the person i'm replying): how are any of you benefited in a meaningful way with the current situation? because i consider that keeping the statu quo just to have a tool to win an argument on what OS is better is not a meaningful thing. how having less options and practically being locked to MS products benefits you?

Some links:

I bet you waste your life watching anime and shitposting here.

>> No.57284264

>>no office software*
Again, by involving your tastes now your argument is not better than an opinion, most probably everyone knows that there's office software for linux:
-Libre office
-Google docs.
-MS Office 365.
-MS Office on wine.
-WPS office.
-I think own clowd integrates an office application.
-There's one called onlyoffice that seems pretty nice (i haven't tried it tho).

By adding the "*that aren't total shit" clause you're trying to shield yourself from being proved wrong. I can't prove tastes wrong but at least i can provide an opinion the same way you did:

What i do on linux is the following:
>MS documents can potentially lock out yourself from your own documents making you depend on MSO, so for any document i want to be the owner forever i use Libreoffice and i use ODF.
>If i need to give a document i send it as PDF.
>If that document needs to be modified by someone else and that person doesn't use LO i use google docs.
>I i receive a document on MSO format i use MSO on wine.

>no file picker thumbnails
Not true for KDE and if we use that as a criteria to measure the quality of an OS then for example windows doesn't even has tabs on the file explorer, i cannot customize it properly without touching system files and at the moment it doesn't have a proper package manager.

>no support
You can buy support from companies if you want, also the help topics are not obscure things so most problems can be fixed with a google search and the error messages are useful compared to windows for example.

>doesn't just werk
It works fine for me, better than other options i have tried but to be precise you must make clear your criteria on what you consider "just werks", are you implying you're using an operative system with no bugs?

>> No.57284325

Unfortunately most people is instructed on how to use windows from a young age and most people doesn't even knows what is an operative system. Repetition has an effect even if what's being spread are lies and microsoft knows this.
