>Can't even click a mouse without having to type a password

Here's a pro tip: Next time this happens, search the device name on GitHub, chances are that someone had the same problem as you and made a driver for it.

>> No.64859147

>>Installing software is a 3 hour process
It really isn't.
You search your database to see if the distro have the package and then you install it.
If it isn't there, you may need to spend more time to locate where you can get it, but it shouldn't take you hours to find.
The only way to spend hours installing something is if you compile a huge application on a slow CPU.
Like libreoffice or Firefox on a raspberry pi.
>>The most mundane activities are a pain in the ass

>>Have to do everything manually

>>No games

>>Permissions everywhere
This is a good thing.
The rwx system is fine.
>>Can't even click a mouse without having to type a password
You need permission to modify the base system. So installing software, modifying users etc requires a password. I don't have sudo access to all the computers at work and I can still do my job.
>>No compatibility with anything
Like what? A lot of things work better right away without having you to configure anything. Things like niche sensors or controllers is the onlybthing you install drivers for manually these days as the rest just works.
And the best part is that if it works today, it is not very likely to stop working 10 years from now.
But normal stuff like a camera, printer, mouse and keyboard etc just works.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

You keep using that word, but I don't think you know what it means.

Let's face it, all of you Linux users are using it because you were told it's better. Only 1% can really make it better than windows. The rest 99% are elitist posers. "Hehe I use Linux, I'm quirky like that."
You know Windows is better and more practical in the long run. Everything works better. Most of you dual-boot anyway, that's gotta say something.
But the funniest thing in this thread is how you felt the need to name ALL 10 GAMES that work on Linux. Hilarious.
Stop lying to yourselves, Anons. There's no shame in admitting you were wrong.

Have you seen Windows after Windows 7? That's when the people saying that became right.
