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.

>> No.65813030

>>65812869
I'm terribly sorry for interjecting another moment, but what I just told you is GNU/Linux is, in fact, just Linux, or as I've just now taken to calling it, Just Linux. Linux apparently does happen to be a whole operating system unto itself and comprises a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Most computer users who run the entire Linux operating system every day already realize it. Through a peculiar turn of events, I was misled into calling the system "GNU/Linux", and until now, I was unaware that it is basically the Linux system, developed by the Linux project.

There really isn't a GNU/Linux, and I really wasn't using it; it is an extraneous misrepresentation of the system that's being used. Linux is the operating system: the entire system made useful by its included corelibs, shell utilities, and other vital system components. The kernel is already an integral part of the Linux operating system, never confined useless by itself; it functions coherently within the context of the complete Linux operating system. Linux is never used in combination with GNU accessories: the whole system is basically Linux without any GNU added, or Just Linux. All the so-called "GNU/Linux" distributions are really distributions of Linux.

It's not practical to avoid. You can cut out Google and Facebook, but keeping out all the botnets just confines you to a shitty hardware and software ghetto.

Only if you're a brainlet. There are even options in the graphic drivers' settings that you can turn on to prevent tearing. Also compositors like compton which prevent it further.

Ok I'll agree with you on that, the drivers are bad, both proprietary and open source, some are just discontinued. Although I have to criticise Nvidia , AMD and Intlel for doing a shit job at making the drivers

GNU is not an operating system. Linux is both the kernel and OS. If a computer were a car then...

The hardware would be things like the engine, transmission, fans, alternator, etc.
The kernel would be the internal components connecting the hardware like the steering linkage, brake and throttle cables, etc.
The OS would be the steering wheel, pedals, shifter, etc.
The userland would be all the nifty features built on top of all this.

GNU is like a car radio or windshield wipers. So, it's the Linux kernel/OS running the GNU userland.

The Linux operating system consists of a series of system calls. Things like open, close, read, write, and exit. These calls are used by the GNU C library but they are written by Linux developers. What the GNU created is a userland collection.

GNU/Hurd is a GNU operating system matched with the Carnegie Mellon Mach microkernel running a GNU userland. Microsoft Windows is a Windows kernel and OS running a Windows userland.
OSX is the retarded bastard of the CMU Mach microkernel/FreeBSD monokernel matched with a frankensteined shitsplosion of an OS running an ad hoc userland cobbled together from components found in various open source dumpsters.

Linux is the kernel and the OS, Richard.

this is objectively false. nobody in their right mind would try to develop for microcontrollers, which still make up a majority of the world's computers, in osx. there is zero flexibility required for embedded systems or web servers which is why exactly 0% of the internet runs on apple software. it's more work than it's worth to develop in osx when you could simply develop in the same os as the product target and android is now the large majority of mobile devices as well. osx is a dead meme of an os that had a great marketing team, but marketing can only carry a product so far.
