I want to like windows/Linux, I honestly do. I know they are more customizable hardware wise and can achieve higher performance.


MacOS just looks better. You can say it doesn’t matter but it does. When I use windows I am struck by how ugly it is. It reduces my happiness. Good looking things make people happier. Aesthetics matters.

And macOS and Macs are just more aesthetic.

Pic related. You will not find a PC that looks better than pic related.

fuck off, shill.

Macs are aesthetic, if you dont have money, hackintosh are a good option

>> No.63308677

I don't think that looks good.
All those huge icons at the bottom for no reason.

Wow, a desktop picture with some half transparent app launcher.

Great if you need to see your desktop picture.

Shit, man. You sound easy to please. You could have saved a stack of cash by buying one of those electronic picture frames and putting a screenshot of a desktop on it.

Another impractically-minded shill who cares more about how things look than how functional they are.

I bet that you'd rather drive a car that is heavy, slow, overheats all the time, costs as much as a house and has its hood welded shut, but looks aesthetically pleasing, than drive a car that is cheap, inexpensive and easy to maintain and upgrade by the end user, gets good gas mileage, runs decently fast and will easily last 300,000 miles or more, but just looks ordinary. Because that's the difference between Apples and PCs.

I actually like the way Gnome looks.

Does this make me a massive faggot?

wooow yeah, way better than having just a wallpaper

not really, it's all preference.
i would like GNOME more if it were more open to customization

>> No.63308915

Not OP and not even an Apple fan.
But I do agree with OP that aesthetics matter for happiness.

Same reason you want your furniture and your car to look nice.
And why communist countries look "depressing".

It's actually one reason why I can't buy Apple products: they are far too feminine looking for my taste.

>> No.63308921

You outgrow this phase pretty quick after dealing with an OS that makes linux's UIs look user friendly, stable as fuck, and laid out by sane people

You also outgrow ricing after turning 18.

I bet your pleb ass living arrangement has windows, I myself living in a concrete room with only a lamp and a desk, I guess you don't appreciate true functionality like me.

Nobody here even likes windows, your employer should have at least told you you're supposed to shill against linux here. Gnome 3 looks better than mac

>> No.63309827

I still prefer a GUI when I'm not sure what I'm looking for yet.
Luckily I have pamac for that.

>AUR doesn't have it

Not a likely scenario.
If it's available for Linux and not some extremely obscure shit you can be 99.99% confident it will be available through the AUR.
