I've used Linux for over a decade and have no idea what this means. Actually this isn't true at all. Maybe this is what it looks like using WSL but not on an actual distro.

>> No.71008279

work during working hours on the work computer that your employer gives you. Let them care about what it runs. Putting up with retarded bullshit - of all kinds, not just computers - is what they're paying you to do, after all.

Why you'd have work software installed on your personal machine, or be using work software when you aren't at the office working, I can't imagine.

>> No.71008300

software availability isnt a part of an operating system, dingus
it is a reason to use a particular operating system among many other reasons
but mechanically, intrinsically, windows is an inferior operating system
that is the point he was making

programmers don't like to use windows
the decision to compile for and support windows only is an executive decision, not an engineering decision
if given the choice, i would guess at least 80% of competent programmers in the industry would gladly stop supporting windows in order to stick entirely with gnu/linux
this is because, from the engineer's standpoint, gnu/linux is superior in every way that matters to the engineer
at the executive level, you have the opposite
the executive does not see mechanics, the executive only sees market share

gnu/linux is the better system
windows is the better market

Pretty much most of the software I use on Windows runs fine on Linux. The software I use is either open source or runs fine in Linux through snap/flatpak/wine. One of the main reasons I prefer using Windows though is that hidpi scaling is still awkward on Linux. KDE plasma has hidpi scaling but any qt program gets blurry icons. The KDE developers say it's a bug with qt but I don't know.

Ubuntu unity was the only DE that dealt with hidpi scaling well.

there is nothing to be fixed
it is inherently better than windows in every measurable way except market share
the issue here is actually the corporate executives in charge of popular software
they see that they already built everything for windows, they see that developing for another system will cost omney, and they see that gnu/linux doesn't have a high market share
meanwhile, 95% of people are using OEM computers, which either run macOS because they are made by Apple or they are OEMs that have longstanding agreeements with Microsoft to ship their system and only their system
And since business and home consumers simply buy OEM machines, Windows market share stays dominant
Microsoft literally pays OEMs to ship their software
do you really think that, given the choice between paying for an OS to load onto their machines or loading them with software they can have for free, they would choose to ship the paid software when they can get higher profit margins out of the free software?
if Microsoft didn't pay OEMs to install their software, OEMs would almost unanimously switch to shipping gnu/linux in order to boost profit margins and would simply expect the customer to just deal with it, or would spin it as "now includes our new innovative software" and slap an even higher price tag on it in order to double down on their decision
and 95% of people, having all of their purchasing decisions made by pretty stickers and positive slogans, would eat that shit up

the ubiquity of microsoft's software is because microsoft dumps all of their money into pretty much forcing everyone to use their software rather than improving their software to the point where people actually want to install it
this is not due to any inherent property of the software system
this is entirely due to executive decisions and corporate bureaucracy

quit putting words in my mouth
i never said it was perfect
what im saying is if you compare a fresh installation of any half decent gnu/linux distribution with a fresh windows installation, the gnu/linux system is, from an engineer's perspective, the superior software system
keep in mind of course that a freshly installed windows system from a standard iso or cd is so shitty that there are actually people who go out of their way to obtain an obscure version of the enterprise software that has all of the """features""" removed in order to make using windows a less shitty experience, even if only slightly

the advantage - the one single legitimate advantage - that windows has over anything else is the amount of software development executives that target it as their platform
and that isnt because of any mechanical property of their system
it isnt because windows has x feature and can run y really fast
it is entirely because of market share
said market share is, as i said previously, solely because microsoft pays OEMs to ship their software
it isnt because of any intrinsic property of the system, its just because of money
money that microsoft has only because they were in the right place at the right time to get that sweet, sweet DOS deal with IBM

>Linux doesn't have adobe, autodesk and office support
The correct way of saying it is "Adobe, Autodesk and Microsoft haven't created GNU+Linux clients". GNU+Linux can still use these from their end if you use WINE but the official support is up to these companies. You have to take it up with them. GNU+Linux has done what they can and should do about this issue.
>I will stick with Windows until Linux fix his own shit.
There's nothing to fix from their end. The system already works, third party software support comes from the third party.
>no adobe, no autodesk, no games, no office, no affinity photo.
Read above. Also which job requires these specifically? Otherwise it's a list that doesn't affect anyone 100%.
