Because a bearded man told me so.

it's good if you don't play gaymes

It's the same reason everyone needs to vaccinate their children: if enough people are immune to a certain disease (Win32 viruses and malware, NSA backdoors, Microsoft spying) then the herd gains a measure of immunity and the disease stops being able to spread so rapidly. Windows users are the infected and OS X users are the anti-vaxxers in this situation.

More users means more gaymes.

Because they have this mentality of "This works great for my specific and personal needs. Why isn't everyone using this?" then it degrades into circlejerking, shitposting, and forcefully trying to shove down your opinions down everyone else's throats.

Also if you say anything against it they'll resort to yelling overused buzzwords and calling you a meme or someshit like that
>>
It's free. Fucking free.
The cheapest windows that I could find goes for $69 and all I do on my pc is just internet shit posting. I'd rather save the money and install linux.
>>
>>52356796
but don't .deb files and unregulated 3rd party repositories, as well as cross-platform attacks such as javascript, html5, and flash make it redundant?

if anything, it'd be even less secure, since most people don't use antivirus on linux.
>>
>>52356859
This can also apply to Thinkpad users, but they're a bit more discreet about it. Not as vocal.
>>
>>52356885
When Linux becomes popular, there will be more people interested in attacking the Linux system. Then comes the paid, proprietary anti virus market. And it will spiral into more and more proprietary software and be just another windows except on this version you have to know and learn a lot about computers.

Thus is why Linux still hasn't gained traction.
>>
>>52357111
simply because of how packages in Linux work it would be significantly harder to attack a Linux system. also you can use something like selinux to further mitigate that risk
>>
>>52357265
If and when Linux becomes popular its most likely going to be a bloated version like Ubuntu. Arch, Debian, even mint and others are far too anaesthetics and system oriented to ever cater to normies. The age of learning how things work in order to use them are long over. If the Linux community can't get over that fact and help push normies into Ubuntu or some other easy mode distro then it will literally never take off. Ever.

>>52356696
Validating Stallman implicitly validates pedophilia.
>>
>>52356696
because its the shitty kernel that got shipped with my gnu operating system. how is hurd doing by the way?
>>
>>52356696

Because its a free version of the greatest OS ever made, unix.
>>
i dont encourage others to use linux. whenever normalfags rush into something they ruin it. stay on windows and mac. besides, linux is for pedophiles and basement dwellers anyway
>>
>>52356696
Until its usable without the command line its a failure. Until you can install software as easily as with Windows its a failure.

It HAS to be a money maker to succeed. It makes MONEY in high end server land and thus it succeeds. On the desktop its socialism at best and like all socialism doomed to failure as nobody has any financial interest in fixing the damned thing.
