Only newfags use linux, professionals use macs. How much of a pathetic virgin must you be to use a server OS for a desktop?

He considers his college professors to be professionals.

>I want to make one thing crystal clear - Windows, in some regards, is even worse than Linux and it's definitely not ready for the desktop either. Off the top of my head I want to name the following quite devastating issues with Windows: • devastating Windows rot, • no enforced file system and registry hierarchy (I have yet to find a single serious application which can uninstall itself cleanly and fully), • svchost.exe, • no true safe mode, • no clean state, • the user as a system administrator (thus viruses/malware - most users don't and won't understand UAC warnings), • no good packaging mechanism (MSI is a fragile abomination), • no system wide update mechanism (which includes third party software), • Windows is extremely difficult to debug, • Windows boot problems are often fatal and unsolvable unless you reinstall from scratch, • Windows is hardware dependent (especially when running from UEFI), • Windows updates are terribly unreliable and they also waste disk space, • there's no way to cleanly upgrade your system (there will be thousands of leftovers), etc.

That guy has a terrible attitude though, just reading his comments gave me cancer, when he cannot win an argument he starts insulting a lot.

Academia is a completely different world that working in the private sector. And working in government is another world of it's own as well.

I don't mean to imply that professors are incompetent, or unknowledgeable, but they do usually have no clue what the world outside their school's walls is like.

>the "desktop"

If every OS is a "desktop" OS, then every OS is complete shit

The "desktop" requires retard-oriented software design in order to be successful. I hope it dies completely before this desktop cancer can ruin my favorite server/workstation OS.

All that shit XDG/FD.ORG did to a fine successor to UNIX was bad enough... along with the subsequent death of the real UNIX style of development and use as OS X/windows skids flocked towards it...

Innovation stopped with CDE
