I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as Lincux, 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/Lin

The desktop environment of choice is irrelevant.
It's the toolking which the application you're using was made with.

So recent firefox versions shipped with most distros won't, because they're compiled for Gtk3.

no I mean the thumbnail bit works, or at least it did when I last used it, but xfdesktop doesn't start with the patched version, so you just have a grey screen as your desktop background and you can't right click anything on the desktop, it fucks up nemo (file manager), i don't know why but it all works when I reinstall gtk2 and glib2

Linux is garbage. G A R B A G E.
People only use it because it's free and because they can shitpost about it on this fucking cancerous board.

No good software exists of Linux. It's a timesink for neet nerds who want to circlejerk in desktop threads.

Once you grow up, you'll realize I am right. Windows is better for work.

Yes, deep down you know I'm right. Stop making excuses, don't even bother replying

This is true but you can use firefox versions patched to use the kde file chooser instead:

When i concur that it's true that pulling a lot of dependencies is not something nice i also thing that your statement blows the problem out of proportion, you mostly only pull libraries and since plasma 5 the kde frameworks got modularized this will not be a problem in the future

While i think that the recent versions of gnome shell are reasonably good and even comfy, it doesn't surprises me that they lost a lot of popularity since gnome 3. Fortunately we can just ditch any DE or even a complete distro while retaining good compatibility, if this were windows we'd be fucked

Really? I remember when I was fucking with it on XFCE, I could nevre get chromium to detect the damn file chooser. I'd fuck with it again, but Firefox just has more powerful features so I stick with it
