Is anyone else considering going to Apple/going back in my case because of how little Windows respects your info/freedom?
Same shit with Google.
Linux doesn't have program support.
Linux has a good deal of program support, OP. I'd suggest trying it for a few weeks before coming to any conclusions about going back to (overpriced and walled-garden) Apple. You might be surprised. And if you aren't, well, Apple's not going anywhere.
>implying Apple respects your info/freedom.
Linux has more programs than what you need. Even if you need to run Photoshop(or other non supported software) you can use WINE or Virtualization to run it.
OP here, I've been using Linux as a hobby on various computers since 2006.
Apple desktops are more of a ripoff now than ever, it's really my only beef with going back to using Apple products.
I don't trust Lenovo. If it wasn't for the whole superfish thing ( which I know didn't effect Thinkpads), I'd totally be a Thinkpad person. Still have some 90s and early 00s models from IBM.
No it doesn't. The quality of programs is super shit as well, for what it does have.
Why does everyone talk about photoshop? Most people don't use photoshop, it's literally not something most people actually care about.
I have been using Manjaro for a few months now and all programs work better than they do on Windows. The problem is most devs tend to abandon the support for Linux OSes because they don't have enough time to support all the platforms and Linux has the smallest Market Share.
tl;dr if you don't use Linux, there will never be support.
Whether I use it or not has no bearing on support, really. What matters is devs having enough money to continue supporting something. Even the main apps from the Gnome or KDE eco-systems are largely junk.
>Linux doesn't have program support
Wow nice fucking FUD macfaggot windows shill.
GNU/Linux is quite literally the best desktop OS and has unlimited choices to find something that is right for you. It's all for FREE with a huge sideserving of freedom.
No program support? Really? You are a lying piece of shit there is a FOSS alternative to literally anything available on Windows/Mac and it's usually a lot more powerful and just generally better.
It's done in peoples free time because they care about making something great and want to give it awayfor you to use. Who the fuck even are you to start talking shit like this about GNU/Linux and "no program support", kill yourself.
Not really anything, but if a program isn't getting supported eventually it isn't supported anymore or doesn't get new features.
That's not the argument I'm making here, the argument is that even the supported programs are kind of junky. IMHO Linux is still a mess.
Yeah there are alternatives, just like how del taco is an alternative to chipotle.
Trust me, I'm well aware. You get fucked no matter which way you go, it feels.
I'll take KDE over XCFE. Doesn't XCFE just use a lot of default Gnome shit anyways? It's been years since I've bothered using it.
KDE5 is literally shit. It's more buggy than Windows ME and I am using it atm. Sure it works but it's not good. XFCE is much more stable and much more lightweight. No it doesn't use default Gnome shit, just some themes for icons that you can change anyway.
>going to Apple/going back in my case because of how little Windows respects your info/freedom?
>respects your info/ freedom
Please tell you you're joking and that this is bait
>inb4 windows or freedom shill
I'm just stating the facts plus I have dual boot hackintosh. If I could get windows 10 performance and not have to buy it I'd go back to windows 7, hell even xp if it still had support.
OP here, I know, I know. Somehow though, Windows 10 became what we all were afraid Apple would do some day, and still haven't done.
I'm still on Windows 7 / Kubuntu. I refuse to go to Windows 10.
I would consider using an Apple computer in conjunction with my iPhone. However, Apple's services(Email, contacts, calendars etc) just arent up to snuff. Oh they work fine, I guess, but they are very basic. They are no where near feature parity with Gmail or even Outlook.com. Since I wont be ditching Gmail anytime soon for their stuff, I dont see a lot of reason to pay the premium for Apple computers, at least right now.
No really, knowledge about what microsoft telemetry is really getting is all I need to know and knowledge to use their software.
Not just listening to the stupid ass of the internet.
You really deserve a mac.
> remotely implying apple needs to shill on /g/ to sell macs
desu desu senpaifam
>he likes microsoft changing his default programs, deleting programs from his computer, laggy default apps, ads in default applications, forced updates, nagging updates, and his OS sending all his info the NSA enthusiastically!
remember when someone hacked iCloud and Jennifer Lawrence's butthole nude pictures were leaked?
You could literally bruteforce anyone's account because there was no password try limit. It had been like that for years dude. What stops Apple from using this lazy shit on all your other shit? Government needs your iCloud data? Shit, just bruteforce it without asking Apple for permission, but they probably could because they were in the PRISM project where they shared data with NSA
steve jobs a shit
I'm the guy you replied to
What exactly are they doing?
I'm currently on windows 10 and I hate how it just randomly shits itself and random compatibility problems. They also took away some of the control you had, my biggest problem being windows update. Besides that it's not bad I guess.
Not that guy but your reasoning is invalid
>Lol both garbage fake americanized mexican food.
>Is that why I always see Mexicans in California eating at Chipotle?
I see Black people eat chicken from KFC, but that doesn't mean it's 100% authentic chicken.
Jesus christ who the fuck cares about authenticity
There isn't just one culture in Mexico, one food culture
There is no authentic mexican cuisine except for that which emerged in the last 50-100 years as a mish mash of various local cuisines like Sonoran, Mayan, Oaxacan, Zapotec, etc.
Chipotle is perfectly fine northern Mexican food, where they grew rice AND wheat, and made flour tortillas because they tasted better than day old corn tortillas.
Chipotle even uses a white cheese, which is more "authentic" because swiss, german, and Austrian immigrants are the ones who really brought cheese to and created the famous Mexican cheeses, all of which are white.
Mexicans eat a shit ton of salsa, beans, and rice.
Ask Mexicans themselves, they say it's pretty good and nothing weird, and is a lot like what most Mexicans eat every day.
"Authentic" Mexican food is too expensive and takes too long to make for the everyday Mexican.
I have very little, being a couple, of the same problems or I don't use any of the stuff that's listed on that link. The way I use windows don't really affect me that way, I built my PC at first for gaming and if I hadn't upgraded to el Cap so earlier I'd be using that as a daily driver.
For anyone wondering I don't have audio support yet, plus windows took direct control and locked me out of my osx boot. Even though the bootfiles for clover, dual boot window where you can select which os to use, are on my mac ssd. I've just been to lazy to fix it. I just have to reset my mac ssd as priority on windows again. Part of the reason why I want to go back to windows 7, I feel like its going to happen again.
Both are you guys are retarded. I said his reasoning for it being real Mexican food is invalid, which it was.
>it's real Mexican food because I always see Mexicans eating it in California
How is this in any form a legit reason why it's real Mexican food?
I said nothing else besides that. You attacked the wrong guy.
My response was mostly to him saying it was garbage americanized stuff, especially since it really is just oversized soft shell tacos from the northern provinces/the american SW that used to be mexico.
It's not about what you use but how you use it. Just because you use iOS, Mac OSX, or some GNU/Linux distro doesn't mean you are "free" when you still use 4chan, Kik, Facebook, YouTube, etc. They track everything. Hell, even Kik has "police" accounts where law enforcement can just view any conversation they want. Thinking you are anymore free just because you don't use Windows is a huge joke. I'm laughing that you fell for the meme.
That may be true, I'm from the complete other side of the country same region just east, but you replied to me and not that guy. I even said not same guy. I gave an example of what you said in hope people would see it the way I did. I know nothing about authentic Mexican food, so I have no dog in this fight. Nether the less, I hate it when people argue using opinions and not logic. If you would've said what you just said about the burritos, I would've never replied.
Fair enough, I'll admit it was a bit of shitposting because it's often useless trying to use actual arguments about food. People are retarded and don't know shit. I just happen to be really fucking into Mexican food.
:D you almost never see that on this site, I also enjoy Mexican food. I know what you mean about arguing here. I really hope people don't think/ believe the shit they say here. I can't even tell if someone's shit posting or being serious anymore.
>potential next u.s. president basically running his campaign on building a wall
>promises to make America great again

Tell me why I should be able to tell if someone's serious or not on a website again.
>pop vote actually matters
Same idea of bs for her too, just not as out spoken about it

The visa program is broke as fuck, and that's the reason why.
