Sooo where do all these memes about Loonix come from?
From what I recall it's roughly the same installation process for 3rd party software as in Windows or OS X, the only difference being that Linux actually tells you what packages it installs.
Any winfag care enough to explain?
Because Winfags can't fathom the fact that anything can be done different than on Windows and still count as being productive. If it doesn't go 100% the same as on Windows (I actually prefer installing packages via the terminal), it's wrong and counter-productive and blah blah blah.
now set up a network share without resolving to using the terminal or manually editing config files
par time: 15 seconds
Also pretty arbitrary test since SMB/CIFS is a Microsoft's own proprietary protocol and smb is only a foss implementation of it.

Ha! Installing software using terminal. Retard is drooling over his computer daydreaming he's hacking the pentagon. Then video drivers never just werk. He cries himself to sleep. But he felt like Snowden if only for a split second.
Because half the worthless, unemployable pieces of fucking shit on this board use shit-on-purpose distros like arch, Slackware, and gentoo which are still mentally living in 1998 where you still have to do that bs and are essentially purpose built for these faggots destined to kill themselves before 30 because they think it makes them intelligent and then they "recommend" it to everyone
>windows atatic dll hell LMFAAAAAAOOOO!!
>he guis look this closed source static build rpm i just double click install wow so much better than micro$hit winBLOWS HAHA!!!
GNU/Linux fucktards should be rounded up and sent to work camps.
Calm down buddy there's no need to be mad.
Skype for linux makes proper use of package management and uses linux's dynamic libraries.
Using your brain for once pains them too much I presume.
I never understood why the terminal is seen as something bad; I for one was looking forward to learning to use it and installing packages using pacman/apt-get/dnf is a lot easier and more enjoyable than on windows.
For people who still use windows, and especially gamers: enjoy your 50th installation of C++.
>like arch, Slackware, and gentoo which are still mentally living in 1998
Two of those distros are bleeding edge versions of Linux you mongo.People use them because of their modern features.It's the dipshits who run server software on their desktops who deserve your criticism.
